“Tango for Jansjo” by Carlo Vogele

In his spare time, Carlo Vogele, an animator at Pixar, created Tango for Jansjo, kind of a sensual Luxo, Jr. starring Ikea lighting fixtures. Carlo’s student short For Sock’s Sake received a spotlight on the Brew back in 2008 when we noted his unique ability to infuse life and personality into inanimate objects.

    I don’t know why this doesn’t have any comments, but it should, so I am. This is brilliant– I was laughing way too hard considering I couldn’t understand a word they said.

        I’m from the rural Upper Midwest, we speak American here. I’ll remember “puta” for future reference though, thank you for that.

    As mentioned in the article, the movements of these lamps really sold me on the idea that they have thinking minds and huge personalities. Very well made and very entertaining.
