May the Beans Be Ever in Your Favor

I’m cutting out a little early to go see The Hunger Games (the review will be up tomorrow), but I can only hope it’s as brilliant, accurate, and moving a movie as this incredibly straight-faced rendition of the book, only starring Beanie Babies. Warning: The above video contains some seriously graphic beanie violence; also, it covers the whole damn first book, so you’re waiting to see the movie without being spoiled, you better skip it. But then watch the movie, and come back watch this. Frankly, I have no idea how I’m going to see the movie now without being disappointed all the characters don’t have big TY tags on their ears.
