Can You Guess What Movie This Is by Just Watching the Most Generic Scenes?

Watch Classic Video Games Get Awesomely Recreated in Stop Motion with Random Objects


All those old games that people used to play? They’re still a lot of fun. Kids today can have their Overwatch and their Pokemon Go, just give me the simple complexity of a Centipede or a Frogger or an Asteroids and I’ll always be happy.

Watching the Filming of a Car Chase Scene Is Way More Fun Than Watching the Actual Movie
