Choreography for Plastic Army Men from David Fain on Vimeo.
My friend David Fain (former fish packer and Sponge Bob animator) made an incredible stop motion animation with dancing toy soldiers that I think you will dig.
Even plastic army men are better dancers than me.
Gotta make one correction, I was a writer on SpongeBob (about a million years ago) not an animator.
That was brilliant! I loved the music but the plastic army men choreography was priceless.
Awesome animation. That made me want to get up and groove.
Can you do an homage to James Bond movie title intros with army men?
they must DANCE!
At first, I was expecting Yma Sumac to burst into song.
this is just…
This would have made the best Sifl ‘n’ Olly segment ever.
Also, I had never heard of Pink Martini before. I think I’m in love.
My dad used to paint military miniatures with SCAHMS. He would have LOVED this!
Me? I’m just an animation freak. This felt like I was watching something from an early SNL, and I was happy to do so. Sweet music choice, too! For people who enjoyed the music, you might want to hop over to SomaFM and check out their Secret Agent or Illinois Street Lounge channels. You’ll find plenty to get hooked on there :)
That was sublime.
Definitely one of the strangest forms of genius I have seen. Excellent.
I have been in a bad mood all day and now my eyes are all crinkly from smiling and I feel ten pound lighter.
I am officially a Pink Martini fan.
