Lego Ship in a Bottle

With its stop-motion aesthetics and chirpy, vintage soundtrack, this video seems like it could be an outtake from an unmade Wes Anderson film , but it's actually a very cool amateur art project.

My personal takeaway: I need more impressive hobbies.

If the sound of Donovan's hippie bounce (and strangely accented singing) starts to irk you as it apparently has lots of other viewers you can watch a silent version of the video here .
