A bit of old news, but too funny not to run. Obama took a hilarious shot at the Birther camp at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner last week. The best part was his wisecrack after his “birth video” ran:
I want to make clear to the Fox News table — that was a joke. That was not my real birth video. That was a children’s cartoon. Call Disney if you don’t believe me. They have the original long-form version.

Taiwanese filmmaker Counter656 created this awesome stop-motion animated film pitting video game hero Mega Man against booby traps, Gundam mechs, and Decepticon lieutenant Starscream. Given how little articulation some of those figures have, particularly Mega Man and Zero, this is excellently animated. Notice how expressive Mega Man’s face is and how natural his gestures are. Using action figure packaging backboards for walls and scenery was a clever move that gives the environment a nice MST3K feel. Good stuff all around.
