  • 1) I wish I had that much free time.
    2) How come no one was electrocuted? You’d be surprised how much power lies in only a few electrical lines…
    3) I don’t trust that guy with the flower.

  • Reese’s Pieces

    Curious choice to use sillos that look rotoscoped, yet executed with tape.

  • Not shiny or bright enough.
    No specific demographic target.
    No celebrity voice employed.
    No wisecracking sidekick.
    No music segment written by Elton John or Randy Newman.

    What are they, NUTS?

    Because … duh … it was electrical tape.

    ….Well, Mom always said you could do anything with duct tape :\ (though technically it is electrical tape… But, oh, well, close enough ^_^. )

    WOW, that was bad. What are you a bear? : )

  • Duct tape, electrical tape… wait, isn’t it just painters’ tape?

    Regardless, pretty impressive for 24 hours. I don’t think I’d have the patience, even for a day. I get frustrated enough with old-fashioned pencil and paper. :-)

    Thank you, thank you, I’m here ’til Sunday!

    Yep, it looks like plain ol’ blue painter’s tape, which is a lot easier to tear into the small pieces needed for something like this. But electrical tape made for a funnier line. :)
