It's Fingerrific!

Lejo is perhaps the greatest actor I've ever seen perform, and he does it all without dialogue. Click on "videos" (or "filmpjes"). Jim Henson would be proud.

That's pretty creative. Reminds me of the japanese "puppet" shows. Creative nevertheless.

Anyone got a direct link to the videos? The buffering is ruining the fun.

Ahh, you can let the video load, then click the link to show it again and it shows the cached version.

These are very cute and funny. I'd love to see more of them.

The Dutch are weird. :)

No buffering problems here, although I do think he could get a better image quality without all that superfluous background.

Almost forgot: the concept and execution are amazing though.

That guy is so high.

In Magic Trick, he was totally palming it.

goodnewsfortheinsane, I think the "superflous background" adds to the character of the whole effect. The way the open space frames the little guys is quite charming!

On second thought, I guess you're right, Robot Johnny. The background is half the charm.

Awesome. Really wonderful. Thanks, RJ!

I don't know about "greatest actor ever," but they certainly are, as squirrel says, "really wonderful." I love the robot and the accordion players.

I also thought it was funny how when I clicked on the E button to get the English translation, it turned out to be Spanish (Espagne). And English turned out to be GB. (I guess that would be the King's English.)

I give this two thumbs up. Two thumbs with googly eyes.
