Film: A LEGO version of an Adam Buxton Bowie sketch? Yes please

As content combinations go Adam Buxton + David Bowie + LEGO is pretty much a dream formula. Animator Chris Salt has taken Adam’s brilliant sketch explaining how Bowie’s transformation from Ziggy Stardust to Aladdin Sane (might have) happened, and brought it to life using everyone’s favourite Danish toy. Reminiscent of Eddie Izzard’s superlative exploration of how on earth Gerry Dorsey became Engelbert Humperdinck, it’s a super-silly but affectionate take-down of one of pop culture’s most iconic figures. We can only guess how the history of music might have been different had Cobbler Bob won out though…
