Internet people sure do love Lego. If only there were cats made of Lego.

There were a surprising number of angles in that. Even more than the original, which was cool. But I think Lego Felix should've landed on his feet.

This is a promo video for an upcoming maker fair, which explains the speed of shooting. I hope they have competition to recreate situations chosen by the audience.

I don't drink Red Bull so i'm not really interested in this sort of extreme legoing.
