‘Creature Comforts’ at the Zoo pre-OOT.

The following video is from Nick Park’s Aardman company it won an Oscar and really launched his career. It’s very funny, please check it out. The Brazilian Puma is my favorite.

 

 

For those of you who are not familiar with Nick Park/Aardman:  The Aardman Titles are listed here

 

In 1985, Nick Park joined the staff of Aardman Animations in Bristol, where he worked as an animator on commercial products (including the video for Peter Gabriel‘s “Sledgehammer“, where he worked on the dance scene involving oven-ready chickens). He also had a part in animating the Pee-wee’s Playhouse which featured Paul Reubens. Along with all this, he had finally completed A Grand Day Out, and with that in post-production, he made Creature Comforts as his contribution to a series of shorts called “Lip Synch”. Creature Comforts matched animated zoo animals with a soundtrack of people talking about their homes. The two films were nominated for a host of awards. A Grand Day Out beat Creature Comforts for the BAFTA award, but it was Creature Comforts that won Park his first Oscar.

In 1990 Park worked alongside advertising agency GGK to develop a series of highly acclaimed television advertisements for the “Heat Electric” campaign. The Creature Comforts advertisements are now regarded as among the best advertisements ever shown on British television, as voted (independently) by viewers of the UK’s main commercial channels ITV[4] and Channel 4.[5]“

    Now, I can’t say that I will agree with all the things that the present group who call themselves Libertarians in the sense of a party say, because I think that like in any political movement there are shades, and there are libertarians who are almost over at the point of wanting no government at all or anarchy. I believe there are legitimate government functions. There is a legitimate need in an orderly society for some government to maintain freedom or we will have tyranny by individuals. The strongest man on the block will run the neighborhood. We have government to insure that we don’t each one of us have to carry a club to defend ourselves. But again, I stand on my statement that I think that libertarianism and conservatism are travelling the same path. President Ronald Reagan

    Oh my G-d! Reagan and Santorum say and believe the same thing! Again!

    I salute the daily Caller & Mark Levin for continuing to expose MM for the evil PsOS they are… losing their tax status is only the first step, there should be some criminal charges pending (in a post Holder world)

    Ron Paul… you know, I heard somebody say he was like insecticide – 98 percent of it’s inert gases, but it’s the two percent that’s left that will kill you. What that means is that he’ll make total sense for a while, and then he’ll say something so way out that it negates everything else. I like the guy because he knows how to excite the youth of America and fill them in on some things. But when he says that we’re like the Taliban… I’m sorry, Congressman Paul, but I’m nothing like the Taliban. --Dave Mustaine

    He’s pretty sharp!

    so far O has not been real active in the pardon department… he has however shown a tendency to throw his friends under the bus when the light is shined upon them… shine the light.

    $47 billion train to nowhere.

    This is the kind of waste the Republicans need to focus on as much as possible. And ‘fast & furious.’

    Kossacks are supporting Santorum.

    Hee hee. They might not even slightly sense the mood of the country

    Sure Santorum is the perfect strawman for them. Obama will crush him in the general. He’s telling Libertarian leaning Conservatives to take a hike. Many may oblige.

    Well, since you would obviously prefer Obama to Santorum what’s the problem?

    I am just telling you electoral reality. I don’t like either. They are both Big Government types.

    This election is a nightmare for me. Marxism vs. Theocracy or Rockefeller Republicanism. No thanks. What ever happened to Limited Government, Free Markets and States Rights?

    @ Rodan:
    Free trade is great if both countries have full employment and specialize in what they are most efficient at producing.

    The developing world is eager to trade substinance farming for manufacturing.

    We can’t figure out that unemployment is less productive than manufacturing.
