Pixels short film

The pretty short film Pixels opens on a hot, sunny day just like today somewhere in Brooklyn, with that sacred ritual of putting an old TV out to pasture, except the abandoned appliance quickly springs to life and explodes a cloud of pixels that swiftly makes for Manhattan. Once there, the rainbow cluster of cubes forms into a series of classic video games—Tetris, Donkey Kong, Space Invaders, Pong, Pacman, Frogger—and destroys the city, turning it into pixels in the process. It’s cute, really well made, a lot like that Royksopp video, and possibly also about terrorism. Watch it after the jump. (DesignYouTrust)
