Is This How You Listen to “Lion King” Music?

French animator David Besnier who was featured here last week for his impressive Flash website banner returns again with a humorous short revealing how he listens to music from Disney’s The Lion King. The piece has racked up over 85,000 views on Vimeo in the two-and-a-half days since it’s been online. He created the piece for Christmas Experiments, a website that presents 24 short online projects by digital artists throughout the month of December.

    Wish this were a bit longer but its got a lot of replayablity to it, I crack up every time.

      Yeah, I would have loved to have seen him reenact the baby Simba being lifted sequence with his cat.

    Great job David! Thanks for helping silence many of the Flash haters out there by delivering consistently stellar work!

    I saw this on the front page of Deviantart–it’s hilarious. I love the part with the cat.

  • Daniel Brown

    I’m pretty sure he does most of his work in flash.

    I love the little “tick!” with his pen at the end. Yep, I know this music inside and out, too.

    This is exactly the kind of thing I could see as the evolution of the newspaper comic strip.
