Hilarious Animation on American Football by Non-American Perfect Way to Kick Off Super Bowl

British animator and fellow ginger person Fraser Davidson is back at it again with his hilarious animated short, A Guide to American Football. In it, he explains to "liberals, ladies and lymeys" the ridiculous rules, terrible traditions and silly structure of America's most beloved game. 

Davidson produced another equally-hilarious football-themed short a few years back with his animated piece Irritable Bowl Syndrome based on Bill Maher's book The New New Rules: A Funny Look at How Everybody but Me Has Their Head Up Their Ass.

What really sets Davidson apart is not only his excellent animation skills, but strong script-writing and storytelling. He never forgets to bring the funny. I recently featured the sizzle from his animation collective, Sweet Crude, as an example of how to create a sizzle reel that shows off your skillset without being complete bullshit.

Yes, football is ridiculous as this piece points out, but damn if we don't love it. Onward to the Super Bowl in New Jersey!

Calvin and Hobbes-inspired Snowmen Come to Life, Attack City, Get Pummeled by Nissan

Ok, so maybe they're not the tongue-in-cheek snowmen that Calvin notoriously flanked his front lawn with in the classic comic strip. They are unholy snowy bastards out for blood. HUMAN BLOOD.

Every winter needs Calvin and Hobbes' snowmen.

The Nissan Rogue is a fine product. Not wonderful, not terrible, just fine. So kudos to Nissan and TBWA Toronto for finding a very fun way to show off the Rogue's all-wheel drive capabilities without making us look at the actual car for too long.
