Happy New End!

happy-new-end

French collective Bonzom (Passion Paris) celebrates the impending end of the world in this happy-go-lucky short. Riffing on B-movie posters from the bronze age of sci-fi, “Happy New End” blends hilarious writing and voiceover work with a campy cast of characters and a fantastic flair for details.

The premise—and the rapid succession of sight gags—reminds me of the old Tex Avery cartoons I adored as a kid that proposed how various technologies of the future would “improve” our lives. Bonzom’s put their own twist on that time-honored tradition, and they deserve their own cheers for a job well done!
