Watch a Stop-Motion Lego Homage to ‘Dr. Strangelove’


If you’re one of the rabid Kubrick fans lurking in our audience, then drop what you’re doing immediately, and watch this stop-motion version of Dr. Strangelove that YouTube user XXxOPRIMExXX lovingly crafted out of Lego pieces. Why the urgency? As Dangerous Minds points out, these videos were first uploaded back in 2010, but were quickly taken down due to copyright issues, so there’s no telling how long they’ll be up. “I had to take out the famous scene of Slim Pickens riding the bomb and the nuclear holocaust credits to have this video viewable because those scenes were taken directly from the movie,” the filmmaker writes. “I was hoping to have the Slim Pickens scene done in Lego by now but I just never had enough time or effort to do it, maybe some time in the future.” While you wait, enjoy the two sequences that we’ve posted after the jump!
