Zombies are some of the most terrifying monsters out there, and when you think about it, a zombie story (even the campiest zombie story) is pretty dark. The recently reanimated dead--friends, family, and acquaintances--coming back to life to destroy towns and eat your brains (or just rip you limb from limb, depending on what zombie lore you adhere to)? It's completely bleak and terrifying, right?
YouTuber Nixolas decided to take the zombie genre and add a bit more whimsy to it. Instead of giving a bunch of human actors some undead makeup, they made a zombie horde out of LEGO figures. It's a quick animated video featuring a horde running at a wall...and things don't go great for the horde. As it turns out, zombie LEGO figures don't have a great deal of structural integrity.
Our friends over at Laughing Squid first tipped us off to this video, and they also posted a video from Nixolas' Instagram that shows the animation process that went into creating this hilarious horde.
I don't know about you, but this is definitely the funniest zombie horde I've seen in some time. Of course, I think the real unsung hero of this video is the zombie that immediately gets distracted by the LEGO pizza and runs around it until the trip over some debris. A lot of people like to imagine how long they'll survive in a zombie apocalypse, but I think if we're all honest, most of us would just immediately turn into the Pizza Zombie, right?
We love this video, but it isn't the first time that Nixolas has created a unique video like this. A quick perusal of their YouTube and website, and you'll see that they have done a lot of really cool work with 3D animation. The Nixolas YouTube is full of creative and fun videos as well as some great tutorials on the site that can help aspiring animators. Be sure to check it out!
