I have to admit that I'm not the type of person to sit and watch random videos on YouTube or Vimeo. I typically click play and without much delay, I become bored. Yet, with Yulya Aronova's "My Mom is an Airplane" animation I quickly had the opposite reaction.
Frame after frame, I was pleasantly surprised with tiny creative touches. Like the part of the video where the mom-plane swooshes by a grey rain cloud revealing a sun with its rays, wet as if coming out of a hot shower. Or the Eiffel Tower blowing a kiss at the Tower of Pisa, knocking him over to give it that trademark lean. Very clever stuff.
But alas, I've spoiled too much, now go enjoy six awesome minutes.
