You guys already know that I’m a dope about Christmas specials (hey, is this an old Elastic Waist post? How did that get on here?), but can I just say right now that I’m super duper excited about the special stop action animated episode of NBC’s Community this Thursday? Ok, if NBC hadn’t asked me to post this, I probably wouldn’t have written a blog post about it, but I definitely have my TiFaux primed and at the ready. Now if only the little Abed’s and Troy’s were made of felt and faux fur, ala the Rankin/Bass Rudolph special, my cold black heart might really grow three sizes that day.
By the way, the video below is kind of eye-rolly lame because you have to watch a commercial that is almost as long as the clip, but it’s still worth it just to marvel at how long it must have taken them to create the clay models for JUST THOSE 20 SECONDS OF FOOTAGE. People, I work in clay and my hands are dry and pruny in empathy for those artists. For reals.
When is Shirley going to get a People’s Choice award? Even her clay self’s line delivery makes me laugh. How is that possible?
