The Kid Should See This

Hurrah, Crictor’s celebration with paper streamers

Celebrate any festive occasion with this memorable 45-second video by Zita Bernet and Rafael Sommerhalder of the Zurich-based animation studio Crictor. The team often creates playful (and sometimes animation-assisted videos) to celebrate the new year.

Watch as a rotating wheel of paper streamers is activated with a hair dryer propped up on a roll of tape. The scrap parts invention is a delight.
