The Thing: Penguin Version

A mate passed on this fantastic video. 

For years, people have been calling out for John Carpenter to revisit his classic sci-fi remake and, using technology favoured by the likes of George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, replace all the actors. With penguins. Sure, isn't that what we all have always truly wanted; more penguins? Everyone liked March of the Penguins and Happy Feet.

Plus the fat has been cut out of the film, leaving us with a lean, mean, modern take on The Thing, with special effects more convincing than the premake to boot.

Long live Pingu.
