My only wish: That teaandcheese had any other videos.

Awesome.

Reminded me of two of my favorite music videos:

Architecture in Helsinki - Do the Whirlwind (More 8bit goodness)

The Superfantastics - Tonight Tonite (Cup-people-go-to-prom goodness)

Tea&Cheese MySpace profile doesn't have much up now, but it could expand.

The video created for the Barclaycard waterslide competition, which is apparently just the beginning (for Barclay's Youtube Channel).

(So in retrospect, the Architecture in Helsinki one isn't so much 8 bit... but still awesomeness!)

The chiptune-esque background music is really good, too.

2-D stop motion is really an ingenious timesaver, and a trip, besides!

More TLSG, previously.

Love it, thanks!

Someone: Architecture in Helsinki is very 16-bit. You can tell because there's more than 16 colors. :)

8-bit computers were terrible. Half the fun of using them was imagining what we could do with faster machines.

Pretty neat, although I am personally annoyed by any pixel art automatically being referred to as "8-bit". I am aware that that is mostly my own problem, but I refuse to let it go.

Also, the "in real life" part of the title felt misleading, too. Stop motion /= real life, regardless of being posed on "real" objects.

Despite the fact that I'm a picky semantic bitch, I did find it amusing. The music was fun and the digitized-sounding voice was well done.

16 bit, at least.

All right, this was really neat. Thanks!

That's probably the single most fun and useful SLYT ever pasted into the big blue. Empath Rocks!

Speaking of semantic bitchiness, to my mine, /= looks like "divide the left hand variable by the right hand value, and store it in the left hand variable" to me. Does anyone use that for not equals, instead of just using the "≠" character? (The HTML entity is ≠)

Pixel art roolz.

Never seen a /= before, it's != everywhere else.

That's what I get for complaining about semantics, eh? ≠ it is, from now on!
