Serene Teh’s Parkour Motion Reel is a bit of finger gymnastics in and of itself; it’s a fantastic stop-motion animation drawn with a technical pen that really puts the “flip” in flip book.

Stop motion animator Bebop loves to fix fake foods out of inedible objects. After delighting us with a LEGO pizza, he’s back with a some fried chicken – made from clay and one of those squeaky rubber chickens. We’re guessing even if you fry the thing, it’s still a tough chew.
