LEGO RC Santa’s Amphibious Sleigh

LEGO RC Santa’s Amphibious Sleigh

A hilariously weird video in which 11,000 penguins take on 4,000 Santa Clauses, courtesy of the upcoming game Epic Battle Simulator. As insane as it is, what’s truly impressive is the sheer number of characters on screen at once, all using an off-the-shelf PC and graphics card.
