…It’s TGI Friday: YouTube Street Fighter?

YouTube Street Fighter

YouTube Street Fighter is the classic game you know and love but played with a modern twist.

The game consists of an intricate series of videos that allow you to control your player using one of four buttons. Press a button at the right time, and you’ll make a move on your opponent and score some damage points. Move too late however, and you’ll be on the receiving end of a blow that will take some of your own health. Once one of the players has had enough, there are even ending sequences to finish him off.

The animation itself is actually done with a combination of action figures and stop motion, though it’s surprisingly smooth for a video game that’s hacked together out of YouTube clips and the clever use of linking buttons.

Give it a shot and see what you think:

Sex Lives Of Robots

It’s not exactly porn, but Michael Sullivan’s The Sex Life of Robots isn’t far off.

The ‘actors’ that he crafted out of Barbie Dolls, G.I. Joe action figures and other toys were originally going to star in a robot war movie, but as the project evolved, Michael decided to take it in a different direction.

Now, through stop-motion animation, he has created a film that is potentially more controversial than anything else he was going to create, having been pulled from YouTube after

Somebody’s mom complained, you know, because they didn’t want their kid watching, you know, some robot stick his dick in a horse’s butt.

I guess you can’t fault the man for censoring his vision!

If you’d like to see what all the commotion is about, then the (semi-NSFW) video below provides a preview, and if you’re in the area, Manhattan’s Museum of Sex will be showing the actual dolls that went into the creation of the film.
