Video - Classic Arcade Stop Animation Film




Maybe I am still drunk, or perhaps somebody put something funny in my coffee this morning, but I have found this particular short film very entertaining. I discovered "Game Over" when it was mentioned on the fantastic site Boing Boing. The short was created by PES, who made those really amazing stop-motion commercials for Bacardi.

"Game Over" is a short that uses household items to recreate scenes from classic arcade games, such as Frogger and Pac Man. For example, during the scene featuring Centipede, PES used muffins for mushrooms, with a salt shaker shooting birthday candles as the weapon. This is really well done and a nice way to waste a little time while you avoid doing any real work.
