Required Viewing: Marcel the Shell With Shoes On
This animated short from director Dean Fleischer-Camp is the cutest/weirdest/funniest thing you will see all day, possibly all week. It stars Jenny Slate of Saturday Night Live as the voice of Marcel, a tiny talking shell who wears shoes. As a commenter over on Videogum suggests, “So this is what will happen when Lorne Michaels finally retires and Spike Jonze takes over? I’m in.” So are we.
