Rollin’ Safari

Life on the African plains can be treacherous, but the students at Filmakademie Baden-W├╝rttemberg in Germany take a light-hearted look at it in their trailers for an upcoming animation and visual effects conference.

In each of the animated shorts for Rollin’ Safari, we see animals like flamingos and zebras in their natural habitat when they’re set upon by predators. But things don’t go according to plan due to some hilarious changes to their physical characteristics. I’d rather not spoil it for you so have a look at the four animated shorts after the jump.

Sounds Fishy: The Misheard Lyrics of O Fortuna

O Fortuna is one of the most popular bits of classical music. Composed in the mid 30s, the performance opens in bombastic style and descends into a whisper as the choir takes over two minutes to complain about how fate sucks.

For those not versed in Latin, the words of O Fortuna could sound like English words sung rather oddly. And with references to tuna, chicken, Troll Face, Me Gusta, and other popular memes this animated version by YouTube user FamishedMammal plays on that fact.

LOL at the Misheard Lyrics version of O Fortuna below.

Listen to the tune and its proper lyrics (with English subtitles) after the jump.

By the Light of Mother Mustang! It’s the Space Stallions!

If you’re a fan of space westerns like Saber Rider, Bravestarr, and SilverHawks, I think that you’ll appreciate the cheesiness that is Space Stallions.

As a homage to their favourite cartoons from the 80s, The Animation Workshop from Denmark tells the story of Sun Ray and his fellow Space Stallions as they battle the demon of darkness, Destructo. Behold the horsepower, keytars, and cheesy 80s beats!
