Video: Stick figure apocalypse

Via MetaFilter. This is what my dreams look like.

The non-sexual ones, at least. Well … the sexual ones, too.

It gets really hot around 3:40.

Curses to you for making me hang in there until 3:40!

It’s got the music from the Matrix movies in the background too.

Cool…

Disturbing…yet cool.

It’s probably not a good idea to watch too much of this stuff.

The FBI ought to be watching whoever created this. They are the real life version of the killer in SAW.

Warped

I agree. Creators of things like the above video , Barney, and teletubbies are not to be trusted.

And that goes for who ever invented the “black velvet” type of painting that is so popular in Tijuanna.

Snoopy as a WWI flying ace in the sunday paper at breakfast: Great for kids!

The same Snoopy rendered in black velvet and with a chilling midnight hue, hanging over some young childs bed, his snarl now filled with dark malevolance…

Not so great.

Wow.

Allah, if it wasn’t for the music, I’d be cursing you about right now. LOL.

Are you sure? Which one?

By the way, does anyone know what program was used to make these things? I recall making things exactly like this at some point in high school. I used to make snowboard dudes, and I used a lot of springs and crap in mine. Was pretty fun, though I’m not sure it would be as fun when it’s not done sneakily while the teacher helps slower kids on the actual project we were supposed to work on. Either way, I’d still be interested to know the program.

And by the way, the Tacos thing was hilarious.

Uhhhmmmm.

Lone Star on October 15, 2006 at 10:08 PM

It took that many unemployed people to make that?

Lone Star on October 15, 2006 at 10:14 PM

Oh, after this past weeks “GOP Albright Ad” I just figured that this is the new DNC ad. You know saying this is what the Bush Administration is REALLY doing at CIA prisons and Gitmo.

That was sick, disgusting, and far inferior to this old-school stick figure apocolypse.

see-dubya on October 15, 2006 at 11:19 PM

Sick. Just sick.

georgej on October 16, 2006 at 12:41 AM

I turned the music down and listened to Electric Funeral by Black Sabbath.

Made it better.

Mortis on October 16, 2006 at 6:29 AM

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot did I just watch?

E L Frederick on October 16, 2006 at 8:02 AM

Anyone else getting thoughts of Frank J’s “Hatefilled Lefty” cartoons running around in their head while watching this? The only difference I see is, this one has cooler music. =D

Iowa Voice on October 16, 2006 at 10:31 AM

Forget the animation, I love the soundtrack!

Muslihoon on October 16, 2006 at 10:40 AM

The soundtrack is “Navras” from the Matrix Revolutions. It’s the last track on the soundtrack, and played during the ending credits of the movie.

Very Hindu. I love it!

Muslihoon on October 16, 2006 at 10:49 AM

wtf?! 9 minutes of my life that I will never get back…

Jaibones on October 16, 2006 at 11:09 AM

Michele, PLEASE give AP some much-needed time off. We’re worried about him now.

dalewalt on October 16, 2006 at 11:17 AM

Loved it! Thanks for link.

Clark1 on October 16, 2006 at 12:49 PM

As a wheelchair user myself, I was glad to see that there was no discrimination amongst the stick figures. ;)

Reminds me of this–> game.

Jaibones on October 16, 2006 at 11:09 AM

Yes indeed Bones, we have both been robbed of 9 minutes of our lives. Brings new meaning to the phrase, “THIS IS A STICK UP”

Muslihoon on October 16, 2006 at 10:49 AM

Ah yes, I should have remembered. I’m a much bigger fan of the the Propellerheads song “Spybreak” from the lobby shootout scene in the first movie, and Juno Reactor and Don Davis’s “Mona Lisa Overdrive” from Reloaded (chase scene). Track is just over 10 minutes. Awesome.
