Olympic Parody

I think this deadpan (東京オンリーピック 開会式<フルバージョン>) animated take-off of the Olympics may be one of the subversively funniest videos of the year.

There’s something quite comically sublime about the giant motorized pigeons feasting on acrobats, amongst many of the delightful wonders of this remarkable little film… The giant Buddha sweeping teams of competitors off his tongue into the Olympic pool, or athletes self-immolating as part of their events, for example. Brilliant!

  1. I guess that would be the ultimate Opening Ceremonies.

    I wonder if the giant Buddha head will be ready for Vancouver 2010?

    As long as we get the Principal Dancer and the tongue flags I’ll be happy.
