    This is one of my favorite videos. If you liked this video you should check out “the Reverse Graffiti Project” It’s really creative and pretty!

  3. Revenga on November 29, 2008 at 4:52 pm

    This is too great. Since it had been uploaded, I have watched it every day, dreaming to create a similar thing. I hope this will never be removed. Guess, I would die laughs

  4. PankakeMunky on November 26, 2008 at 7:20 am

    that is really amazing. i’ve never seen anything like this. this must’ve taken a really long time to do but the work definitely paid off well

    I saw this for the first time just the other day actually, in a lecture.
    It’s amazing 🙂

  7. Dori on November 25, 2008 at 10:41 pm

    Whoa…. That was trippy….very cool, Mike!

  8. ShadowerLiltani on November 25, 2008 at 8:23 pm

    I think my favorite was the diamond towards the middle that was like, “Holy shit don’t touch me! oh god I’m morphing uncontrollably again… Ooh, I think I’ll take over your being and screw with physics some more!” I’m art and I can do anything I want too.

  9. TEQUILA on November 25, 2008 at 7:29 pm

    WOW!i loved it,amazing and original art!

  10. lynndarwinharris on November 25, 2008 at 6:44 pm

    Wow! Amazing! Loved it!

  11. Truculentangel on November 25, 2008 at 6:14 pm

    whoa…that vid is kinda trippy…thats pretty tight tho XD my cousin used to do stuff like that,he still does,but hes underground,man,i feel dazed&confused after watching that O.o thats like,pretty fuckin awsome how,it travels&transforms into other things&objects…especially when it moves,thats pretty cool,that dude has talent,no offense mike,ur work is awsome too =D it keeps me wondering,”how did he make it&how long did it take?”im stumped =?

  12. YourConscience on November 25, 2008 at 6:01 pm

    Wow. That is, to put it simply, amazing. I love how you can see the background change; it offers a sense of how much time the artist put into this. Very cool.

  13. Hawaii_LP_fan on November 25, 2008 at 5:16 pm

    The artist dedicated a lot of time into painting each scene, creating the story line, and filming this anime. I thought it was different. Creative but almost sci-fi-ish. Those black spiders or ants really creeped me out though. I could handle watching the egyptian beetles in the “Mummy” but spiders, uh no.

  14. soyuneik on November 25, 2008 at 4:21 pm

    Ok, I’m going to change my name to “pirate mothership”…hahaha
    I never thought I’d hear those two words together on the news.
    Speaking of trips, I enjoy that one. Shits dope.

  15. TaylorKenjiLP on November 25, 2008 at 3:05 pm

    mike, explain to me how they did this =S

  16. nillp on November 25, 2008 at 2:15 pm

    LP really deserved AMA.. congratulations! (:

    it was great to read what kerrang! and rolling stone wrote.. 😉

  17. Gemilla on November 25, 2008 at 2:07 pm

    Wow… this is really arte, not an vandal act! 😀 i love this video!!! is so… ORIGINAL! ^^

  18. NoMoreSorrowGirl on November 25, 2008 at 2:03 pm

  20. Zach on November 25, 2008 at 1:31 pm

    Mike, are you really having a baby??

  21. Jay_Sensei on November 25, 2008 at 1:25 pm

    That was awesome O_O… you think you will ever do something like that for an artshow with Mr. Hahn directing it??

  22. Annie on November 25, 2008 at 12:52 pm

    I don’t know what to say….. It’s amazing. Really great. Day by day I like your blog more and more 🙂

  23. rockermeg on November 25, 2008 at 12:49 pm

    Woow! That’s so cool!! That must have taken ages!!
    And when he kicks the log the guy was able to capture the log falling-that was amazing!
    And the teeth bit at the beginning was just genius!
    A little disturbing but really cool!

  24. LaKennyLP on November 25, 2008 at 12:47 pm

    Omg! Is that made in Spain? I see all the wall paintings written in Spanish. 🙂 It’s an incredible work!!! Amazing!!!

    Mike, make sure you watch this… Learning English is still being fun…

    Cheers Mikey! 🙂

  25. DLB on November 25, 2008 at 12:47 pm

    that was wicked! i’ll never look at a diamond or bunch of grapes the same way again. XD this is definitely better than the “lost in translation” vid, although it does make me giggle on the way home from a stressful class. thanks for sharing this with us. 😀 <33

  26. cuz on November 25, 2008 at 12:23 pm

    Whoa, interesting! Happy Teddy Bear Day 🙂

  27. Hybr1d_7h3ory on November 25, 2008 at 12:15 pm

    That was pretty amazing, somewhat morbid at some points, but still amazing none the less

  28. lucky_cat on November 25, 2008 at 12:01 pm

    Dope, I love it! Hey, RB! Do you know these guys?

  29. Callili on November 25, 2008 at 12:01 pm

    though the artistic approach is incredible, I think the pictures themselves are a bit… sick

  30. Trenskinoda on November 25, 2008 at 11:55 am

    Awesome! I really admire people that can do things like this.

  31. karolp on November 25, 2008 at 11:34 am

    man, it’s amazing !! really really cool !!
    mike I have a question for you ( it’s a personal matter, don’t hate me because of this I just want know) I read that you’ll be the next new father from LP !! it’s true that Ana is pregnant ? kisses for all of you !! ;*

  32. Alexandra1984 on November 25, 2008 at 11:27 am

    It’s almost hypnotizing!And the amound of work and patience for this to be fulfilled…Incredible!!

  33. Diana_LP_adicted on November 25, 2008 at 11:24 am

    HOW CAN SOMEONE BE SO CREATIVE???… THIS GUY BLOW’S OF CREATIVITY….INTERESTING THIS RED BARON GUY …i just enjoy it a lot =)….i love the things that you add on you blog..great stuff (”,)

  34. ritzifying on November 25, 2008 at 11:24 am

    Now that’s something trippy to watch! Have to re-watch it later. Loved the Q-Bert action : )

  35. Sonia_LPrnway_ on November 25, 2008 at 11:19 am

    one word: WOW!

  36. krayzieish on November 25, 2008 at 11:12 am

    Damn! That is beyond awesome.

  37. nasharussia1990 on November 25, 2008 at 11:05 am

    Офигеть!!! Сколько сил и труда вкинуть штоб такую анимацию сделать. Уважаю.

  38. Kalini on November 25, 2008 at 11:04 am

    It’s such a hard work. It lasted just 7 minutes, but it’s taken them so much time to do it – a new drawing for each action. At the beginning I even thought it was for real. Amazing work! I admire people who are so patient to do animations. Krassie

  39. skindesbous on November 25, 2008 at 11:03 am

    Guess who has bought RTR today! ME! I watched the video a while ago too, amazing ._.

  40. Jaclyn on November 25, 2008 at 10:57 am

    ZOMFG !!!! Divine work! I love such kinda animation, haven’t seen it for ages. And besides it’s real graffiti………..speechless

    Big respect goes to RB !

    Mike, your blog’s getting better every day <3333

  41. Esaul on November 25, 2008 at 10:54 am

    That’s amazing…Imagine how long it would take to make it…

  42. Curiosa on November 25, 2008 at 10:52 am

    Mike, hope you have a good Thanksgiving.

    PS: did you make it to the 2008 Auto Show?

  43. miKer0cks on November 25, 2008 at 10:32 am

    OMLP LP LP!!! WOW!!! I’m actually staring at the video now!!! WTF?!?!?! That’s so awesome!!! Can you do it? I bet you can…you are multi-talented 😉 O.O I have a great idea!!! Come to my house to draw on my LP wall 😀 Just kidding…XD

  44. Lee on November 25, 2008 at 10:22 am

    Holy crap… that is fucking amazing. O_O I would never have the patience to even try something like that. Wow… that just dazzles me. You guys should do that for your next LP video. (;

  45. Lynnie on November 25, 2008 at 10:22 am

    Now there’s art I could get used to! Do you have to be good at art in order to experience it? I do like looking at art a lot, even if I don’t always understand it – but my friends think it’s weird because I’m no good at art. Surely I don’t have to be the next Picasso to be able to look at something and think ‘that’s so cool’… right? Eh, so I’m ranting – any theories, anyone? Cool vid, though… seriously wish I was able to do something like that!

  46. MarishkaLP on November 25, 2008 at 10:14 am

    HA! that’s incredible! a lot of fun! and this guy with his head! hahahaaaa awesome! cool video, thanks Mike…mm…and thanks Red Baron 😉

  47. Lvix on November 25, 2008 at 10:09 am

    omg! This must be very hard to make…
    Mike, what about you? Can you do this to:p ?
    For a next Linkin Park or Fort Minor Video ever haha:p

  48. Gabry94LinkinParkfan23 on November 25, 2008 at 10:05 am

    woah XD it was so.. cool XD byeez Gabry x

  49. WTF on November 25, 2008 at 9:55 am

    That was all wtf…uh weird.
