Art :: Bunnies in NY
I know, I know - it's a Sony ad by Bravia, with the Rolling Stones - who are just as commercial - but the artistry is amazing. Utilizing 2.5 tons of plasticine (you remember - Play-Doh) this stop-motion animation on the streets of New York City employed 40 animators and took three weeks to complete: "the most ambitious piece of stop-motion animation ever undertaken." You gotta give props to the artists. Once it gets through the fun trivia intro, click on "Watch Our Play-Doh Ad." This is out on YouTube, too, but the quality is way better on the commercial site.
