While its imagery may seem primitive at first, the animation in Rodrigo EBA!’s stop-motion short about pollution is instantly more impressive when you realize that it was made entirely from meticulously placed droplets of water and coffee.

Chibi: Bionic Commando

Chibi: Bionic Commando

Dancer Bryan “Chibi” Gaynor brings Rusko’s classic Bionic Commando theme dubstep remix to life. And by that we mean he turns into a living stop-motion film. That sitting maneuver was insane, and that dog didn’t even make him flinch.
