This is one of the raddest stop animations I’ve seen in months. Not only is it incredibly well executed, but AT-AT Day Afternoon perfectly nails that universal childhood longing for an awesome, lovable pet that no one else on the planet has, yet could make short work out of all your nemesis bullies in seconds — you know, the basic pathos behind Gremlins, E.T., Short Circuit and about 50 other flicks from the 80s. The best part? He’s a goddamned AT-AT. The second best part? He poops Jabba the Hutt. Now how the hell are you gonna beat that?! Props to Patrick Boivin for brightening up my day.
