Lego Thriller!



This is great! From the CTube:
Michael Jackson's groundbreaking music video "Thriller" has all the ingredients for success: cat monsters, zombie break dancing, Jheri curls.

"Lego Thriller" takes all of what makes the pop singer's 1984 video a classic and builds a new piece of work with - you guessed it - Legos. Using stop-motion animation, the video matches Jackson's original frame-by-frame, minute-for-all-13-minutes.

The devil here is in the details. "Lego Thriller's" creators don't overlook any of the particulars from Jackson's epic zombiefest. With an eye only dedicated fans have, they emulate every pan, zoom and angle that give "Thriller" its epic cinematic quality. YouTube browsers can find variations of "Lego Thriller" that prove just how similar it is to its forebear by playing the two videos on a split screen.

The zombie dance scene that made "Thriller" so famous marks "Lego Thriller's" highlight. Despite being zombies - and Lego ones at that - "Lego Thriller's" undead prove to be just as graceful and arthritis-free as Jackson's ghouls. As the Lego zombies chop, sway and shamble through the dance number, one has to wonder how even the most talented animators can choreograph a troupe of figurines.

Now, when is "Lego Beat It" making its YouTube premiere?

I considered posting this on my site too, but the poor quality of the YouTube video made me nix it. Still kind of fun though.
