ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Amid at Cartoon Brew says: "London-based animator Michael Schlingmann (previously on Cartoon Brew) created this funny 20-second animated pun. The animation is perfect." (Thanks, Brandon!)
Very cute. And exactly the right length.
Best video of the year!
This is the funniest thing I’ve seen… ever. Tears streaming down my face, in fact. I love it.
I have an elf that would simply leap at being Commerce Secretary.
Magically leap. And caper; she’s like that.
Something I learned last year: these are called “mondegreens.”
Here’s the wikipedia article.
worryingly, i worked out what the pun was going to be before watching it…
Poor little guy.
Thank you falettinme be mice elf.
It’s so, so, SOOO infinitely corny, it’s genius.
I had to share it with the whole office ;)
As opposed to Treasury Secretary?. Tim Geithner just looks like an elf to me.
Frickin’ neo-con elves, man. Always playing the “boo hoo” card they accuse the Lefties of playing for 8 years.
It’s just tragic how the demand for presidential elves has diminished in just a few short years.
Just look how happy and busy Bush’s elf was: http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/flash/rumple
I can’t stop watching this either. If only all 18-second YouTube videos were this awesome.
Funny. Funny. Funny!
Mark is right. It’s the best video of the year.
Thanks so much for the laughs.
Why can’t I stop watching this?? It really shouldn’t be this awesome (on paper).
A copter full of ROFL.
