It’s always awesome working with the adult swim folks. The puppets were super fun to caricatur-ize. They initially wanted articulated heads and mouths but, with little more than a week for the whole production, alls they got were turning heads. The talent that went into puppeteering for the spot was overkill. I brought in some of the finest puppeteers around for a couple seconds of flailing.
Thanks to the costume wizard, the very talented Scottie Rowell and Authority Films for making it awesome.
One of the bumps made for the Stuff You Should Know TV show. They wanted an "early Sesame Street feel." I'd already made this mock-up for a Tobacco music video I wanted to shoot a couple years earlier but it never materialized.
One of the bumps made for the Stuff You Should Know TV show. They wanted an "early Sesame Street feel." I did a little stop-motion for this. I cooked the pizza in 30 second increments until it favored toward the crispy side. The hardest part was re-aligning the pizza under the camera for each shot. The grease mark was added in post.
