Saturday Morning Cartoons: “Beatles Rock Band” and “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.”
