I got this short movie clip in e-mail last week, and really loved it.
It is a music video to the tune of The Lion Sleeps Tonight , which I first heard from an episode of Friends. It’s the song that Ross’s monkey really likes. A very cute song. Almost as cute as the little girl sound in this song, now what’s the name again? 😛
You’re my honey bunch, sugar plum, pumpy-umpy-umpkin,
You’re my sweetie pie.
You’re my cuppy cake, gumdrop, snoogums-boogums,
You’re….the apple of my eye.
Anyway, after a quick search I found that the hippo and dog in the video is called Pat & Stanley, and the video is done by a french guy name Pierre Coffin. In his site you can download a lot more of Pat & Stanley, and some of his other stuffs like TV commercials. Just go to movies section. The site uses frame and I don’t want to link directly to the move page, but it’s just a few clicks away.
This guy is really talented. The expressions on his characters are so funny and I can’t stop smiling even when writing this now. 🙂 It’s too bad all the videos are pretty short, but that gives you smaller files to download too. (usually less than 2 MB)
