Genuinely hilarious – and timely – vermin-riddled animation from Amael and Leo

Posted by Liv Siddall,

There’s a lesson here for all of us – if you think of something hilarious, make it into an animation immediately, because I guarantee that this short animation by Amael and Leo (in association with Beakus studio) is going to make you laugh, nay hold your attention, for longer than the actual Olympic games ever will. One of the best things about this short film is perhaps the brutal honesty at which Leo and Amael have conveyed the sheer amount of litter and chicken boxes present all over the streets and riverbanks of London. The other best bit? The expression on the face of the rat gormlessly holding up the fag-end – beautiful!
