Insanely labor-intensive Gangnam Style flipbook animation video

An incredibly labor-intensive animated flipbook version of PSY's "Gangnam Style." Such a bummer that Etoilec1, the talented creator of this stunning video, was sound-blocked by YouTube's automated IP enforcement police. Etoilec1's original video is here (and below), in higher rez, but it's stripped of sound. Subscribe to his channel or follow him on Facebook, for more flipbook fun. Above, a lower-rez copycat upload on Vimeo. (Thanks, Joe Sabia!)

Presidential flipbook: combine rhetoric, appearance and icons to make presidential chimeras

Flipbook masters Idiots' Books have created a "Build Your Own President" site that lets you use flipbook mechanics to produce political chimeras consisting of the appearance, icons and rhetoric of any three politicians, seamlessly joined with eerie precision. Idiots' Books are the same people who made the great Makers Tiles in honor of my novel of the same name.

If you enjoy flipping your own presidential hybrids, there's a dead tree edition to be had for $12.
