d9cf7bfdc1f95f7d166affe84a8ed976_preview_featured (3)

TRIPMUNKS: all the CGI Chipmunks movies overlaid, at half speed

nasty chipmunks

Neil Cicierega took the four (!) Chipmunks movies, superimposed them upon one another, and slowed them down. If CGI remakes of cartoons can be seen as the pigs of our cartoon childhoods ushered into the rendering plant, this is the psychic slime left gluelike under the vats. [via]
