Watch this brickfilm right now

If you haven’t seen “Major Malfunction” by MisterMulluc, you are missing out on a fantastic five minute miracle of animation.

Okay, now that you’ve watched that, let’s talk about what makes it superlatively awesome. Amazing animation, creative character design, non-stop comedy, and great camera work, it’s got everything.. My only tiny criticism would be that there’s no real story (i.e. I don’t know why a robot is chasing two well-dressed chaps through a jungle), but then again it’s got about as much story as “Tom and Jerry” and most “Looney Tunes” cartoons. Also, that tiny complaint is buried under a mountain of adoration. I love the way the palm tree gets “bent” at 1:09, the way the guy with the hat keeps putting his hat back on, the absurdist touches like a sign with legs, the cartoonish back and forth starting at 3:20, and did I mention the piano-playing robot!?! Every action is well-motivated and fluidly animated. It doesn’t get much better than this.
