This animated short by Jonny Lawrence is cool. I know we’ve all seen variations on the “Duck Amuck” theme – which I would argue is itself a riff on the Book of Job – but I’ve never seen one with hands versus hadoukens.
What arguably makes this different from Job and Daffy is that here, I don’t think we sympathize necessarily with the creation, but the creator. Certainly as a writer, I understand the notion of fighting with my creation to get it to do what I want. And by the end of the day if my hand is sore, it could be argued that I took a beating from it.
This is more literal, and funnier than what I just said. And it’s called “Maker vs. Marker,” which makes me think of whiskey.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
