As the week comes to a close and we prepare for the chaos of Christmas week, it felt like a good time for a little something silly.
A video has been making its way around the ‘net for the past week or so, and if you haven’t seen it yet, you’re in for a treat. It’s a most epic fake commercial for canned beans that’s set in space. It involves astronauts on the moon, an unexpected guest, and a (possibly) unexpected ending.
But the video wasn’t just made for fun, it’s actually a demo by a company called Cinesite to show off their creature animation skills. This isn’t a company trying to get in the game though; they’ve already done work on numerous blockbuster projects including Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, John Carter, Skyfall, Iron Man 3, and World War Z.
You can see their faux beans commercial below.
You can also watch a making of the animated short right here, and learn more about Cinesite at their website.
Something tells me we’ll be seeing plenty more from these folks in the future.
