Animation: Hilarious animation about Elton John from Young studio

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Did you know that Elton pronounced backwards is “piano?” Well, now you did thanks to the guys over at Manchester animation studio Young. They’ve just released a charming and informative video teaching us all we need to know about lilac-spectacled ivory-tinkler Sir Elton John which we’ve been chuckling about to ourselves for the whole weekend. Why? Because this short animation is probably funnier than everything Elton John has ever done in his life. Mmmm, perhaps barring the time when he wore novelty piano-shaped glasses to sing heartfelt ballad Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word (not the Blue version). We cannot wait to see what this studio full of talented funny-men are going to come up with next in episode two of I Didn’t Know That.
