Pixar has done more than revitalize Disney’s reputation for animation, they have created a new golden age in animated story telling. Hell, just the first 20 minutes of ‘Up’ were better than most of the movies that came out in the last five years.

What we’ve got here is the workd of Leandro Copperfield, a man who expressed his love for Pixar the only way he knew how, by taking the works he loved and creating a new masterpiece with them. Here’s what he had to say about his video.

“Editor’s note: Pixar’s films have always been very important in my life. I was 6 years old when I watched Toy Story the first time, and his films made my childhood more happy. So this video is a personal tribute for, in my opinion, the best animation studio of all time.”

It’s the Wednesday between Christmas and New years. Stop pretending that you are going to get any work accomplished because it just isn’t going to happen. Go ahead, click on the link it might just give you your biggest smile of the day.
