Awesome. Childhood, you have come back to me.

Wait--is the head bad guy Morn from Deep Space Nine?

Wasn't this the original "Cake Walk" plan to deal with Saddam?

So, crazymonk, your profile says your name is Marco Carbone. Any relation to the Anthony Carbone who is credited on the YouTube video?

Just curious.

Also, pretty damn good animation, considering the crappy armatures in your average action figure.

This is the single most awesome thing I have seen on the internets since the pi video.

There is a familial connection, but the video stands on its own merits.

ooooh, good luck crazymonk. I think it's a good video, but some will be pissed by the familial connection.

Well I'm not. This rocked.

What software did he use to make the video? Just curious.

This is amazing. The ending is probably the best part.

piratebowling: Oh well. Such is fanaticism.

IronLizard: No software used. Shot entirely on 16mm film.

Good link, fun video. I enjoyed it. It's nice to see something else in the stop-motion-action-figure genre, since I always enjoy it on Robot Chicken.

Should have just posted it to Projects. It's awesome, I'm sure someone would have posted it here.

Fun stuff. Could have done without the punk music, though.

Sorry, I thought Projects was for my own things. The familial role in this is rather minor.

Great show!

OH AMERICA THE GREAT

Great achievement. That must have taken forever.

I don't care who made/posted it, that is awsome. How long did it take to make?

as far as i'm concerned, crazymonk's "familial connection" just means he can more easily relay to the creators how much we think this rocked. with all the lame fark-worthy posts around here lately, my appreciation for real best-of-the-web posts like this is only increased - family connection or no.

"I don't remember having a white ninja."

Awesome. And it's always nice to be reminded of just how freaking hot Baroness was.

That was wicked.

I was waiting for someone to get upset about "me likey", given all the racial tension here lately.
posted by knave at 7:42 AM on April 12, 2006


I believe it took 88 days to make.

Mikey-san,

yes, that looks like Morn to me.
posted by lyam at 9:36 AM on April 12, 2006


Totally awesome!

Nice of him to use his friend's crappy band for the soundtrack, as well.

It's made the rounds at my workplace, and consensus seems to be that it's pretty fucking awesome.
