This was an entry for the Adam and Joe Video Wars competition. I chose the shorter song because that seemed like the sensible thing to do. Then I went and came up with a wildly extravagant idea for the video that included elephants, bugling monkeys on bicycles, and endless changes of scenery.
I did briefly consider doing some non-Lego stop motion animation for the Meatballs song instead. That idea lasted about as long as it took me to buy a tin of meatballs, open it and look at the contents.
Although I was in an almighty rush to get all this done in time for the deadline, I kept some bits and pieces aside and pulled them all together afterwards for another exciting special features package.
