My Mom is an Airplane
I have to admit that I'm not the type of person to sit and watch random videos on YouTube or Vimeo. I typically click play and without much delay, I become bored. Yet, with Yulya Aronova's "My Mom is an Airplane" animation I quickly had the opposite reaction.
Frame after frame, I was pleasantly surprised with tiny creative touches. Like the part of the video where the mom-plane swooshes by a grey rain cloud revealing a sun with its rays, wet as if coming out of a hot shower. Or the Eiffel Tower blowing a kiss at the Tower of Pisa, knocking him over to give it that trademark lean. Very clever stuff.
But alas, I've spoiled too much, now go enjoy six awesome minutes.

My good friend from Santa Fe, NM, Meg Davenport, suggested this "wonderful animation" from Russia. Her advice is for us to "Enjoy the flight."
