We were recently charmed by this set of six 90-second online viral animations for underwear brand Triumph, from animation powerhouse Beakus. Working with Across The Pond and Exposure. ‘Stand Up For Fit’ delivers something you don’t often see in the media – a combination of female only stand ups and animated underwear advertising. These humorous routines based on underwear malfunctions are deftly brought to life by Ping’s hand drawn ink-line style and a dose of train of thought surrealism. i love the way everything is so simple and clean and nothing gets in the way of telling the story.

I’m very happy to say I recently found another Layzell Bros animation infecting the interweb with their crazed view of the world. Their hyper saturated world of surreal interactions never fails to brighten up my day. This time they have teamed up with ADHD (Animation Domination High Def), the Fox network’s radical late night all-animation programming slot, to hatch a brilliantly rude vision of finding love in the future that proves the more things change, the more they stay the same. Like terrible chat-up lines. Or guys hitting on girls way out of their league. Or gay alien terrorists. Ok yeah, maybe that’s a bit different.
