I have ALWAYS wanted to know the ins-and-outs of the whole beans and farts thing, and there is no one else on this earth I’d rather have explain it to me than Rami Niemi. This animation commissioned by Men’s Health and animated by Vancouver creative studio Giant Ant is the perfect blend of funny, well-executed and actually informative. A lot of the words popping up such as “oligosaccharides” or “pepsin” took me winging straight back to double biology, followed by the joyous realisation that I am now a grown up and I have the option to turn off or walk away whenever I get bored – wahey! Saying that, this animation is so well made it doesn’t even reach boring – if only all scientific matters could be explained in a one-minute-long animation by your favourite illustrator.
