Saturday Morning Cartoons: “Beatles Rock Band” and “Sea Orchestra”

Beatles Rock Band, Sea Orchestra

This week, crass commercialism wrapped up in awesomeness.

Beatles Rock Band: I watched this commercial for the Beatles Rock Band twelve times in a row. Every scene is drawn so beautifully, and the progression through time is handled so well...and it gets plenty trippy enough to call it sf/f.

Sea Orchestra: United Airlines has a number of amazing commercials, this one by the people that brought us one of my favorite surreal shorts, “The Tale of How.”

tres cute. I have this odd desire to fly over to England and buy Rockband now, tho. Flying United, of course ;)

Really enjoyed the new take on Sebastion and the Little Mermaid fish-orchestra there.

Having grown up in a house filled with music all the time and learning to read music with the help of the Beatles Complete compilation - this is by far the most beautiful tribute to the band that changed everything!
