Watch Wes Anderson's Grand Budapest Hotel Be Built Entirely Out of Legos

The Grand Budapest Hotel.

Wes Anderson's Grand Budapest Hotel was a total delight. Equally delightful, though, is the accomplishment of Ryan Ziegelbauer and his team: to celebrate the film's June 17 release on DVD and Blu-Ray, they built a model of the eponymous hotel entirely out of Legos.

It took the team 575 hours and 50,000 Lego bricks to finish construction—an effort reminiscent of all the work that went into the film's actual models of the hotel—though Ziegelbauer and friends can clearly be seen gluing the Legos, which everyone knows isn't allowed. Tony Revolori, who plays Zero in the movie, also makes an appearance. Enjoy.
