Stop-motion With Yarn

Here is a very simple yet captivating stop-motion video with yarn. The video uses yarn as a medium for typography. The yarn provides captioning of the song that is playing. I love ideas that are extremely simply and very effective. Check it out:

There Ain't No Freakin French Fries

This is one of my favorite claymation shorts. It shows a guy pulling up to Jack In The Box drive through with a voice that sounds like Jack Nicholson taking the order. The first time I saw this my cheeks hurt. On a related note, here are some interesting quotes from the god of stop-motion animation himself, Tim Burton.
