The Scarecrow is gorgeous!

Sure, it might be a subtle ad for Chipotle, and yes, it’s also an ad for an app of the same name, but The Scarecrow is flat-out gorgeous. Released less than a week ago, the video already has more than 4 million views on YouTube, so I feel a little late to the party. However, this is one of the best animated shorts I’ve seen all year, and it’s certainly better than the new Mickey Mouse shorts (a la Ren & Stimpy). Enjoy!

Unleashing Zoey onto the world

As a first post, I can’t go wrong with this. Zoey singing “I Won’t Grow Up.”

Enjoy!
