MK12 - Follow the Sun

The twisted minds that power Kansas City animation studio MK12 made it a bad day to be a tasty treat in their homage to drive-in-movie-intermission reels. Those happy-go-lucky snack-bar staples of yesteryear came to vivid, brutal life in the short Follow the Sun, which shows a conga line of gumdrops, popcorn, a candy bar and a corn dog marching through a moonlit drive-in. But this time, it isn't about making you hungry. The good times end when the popcorn accidentally squashes a horn-playing gumdrop. Life is no longer a treat, and the end is near. Menacing snow cones unleash a river of blood-colored syrup. A hot dog lubes up and jumps into a bun, nailing a female ice-cream bar in the eye with a money shot. The sun turns its scorching power against nacho chips. And all the while, cheery music beckons: Come on and take a stroll to the snack bar! The original work (with an assist from cel frame animator T.J. Fuller) ensured that we'd never snack right again. These tortured treats will keep you clear of the concession stand and locked in the backseat of your Buick.
