Nerd Wins the Office Lottery

A hot delivery man ignores all the sexy ladies to make out with a nerdy assistant.  Skyfilm Studio created this 2001 advertisement to promote the Hungarian lottery and show that winning the lottery is more likely to happen than this situation. H/T CulturePub

Icarus

Anyone familiar with the art of sandpaintings will appreciate this 1996 animated short from Hungary. Géza M. Tóth, founder of the KEDD Animation Studio, paints in the sand at a seashore to retell the ancient myth of Icarus and his yearning to fly. The concept is brilliant, as well as the use of all the detritus that washes ashore — for instance, driftwood and seashells. Tóth is perhaps best known for his Oscar-nominated short Maestro, but Icarus is just as original and imaginative.

Babes of Burlesque: 41

MELITTA HONEYCUP

From Hungary, Melitta Honeycupp has carved out a special niche with her aerial burlesque. She’s a founding member of Hungary’s new circus troupe, the Freak Fusion Cabarett, but more often you’ll find her performing her high-flying, death-defying acrobatics in Barcelona, Spain, her adopted town. She does pole dances, as well as using aerial hoops and silks.

Here, she goes airborne for a display of aerial burlesque at the Cafe de Paris in London.

Ok, it’s not burlesque per se, but here’s a snippet showing the Freak Fusion Cabarett, so you can get a taste of Melitta’s new side venture.

On her website, you can bend and drag a virtual Melitta Honeycupp however you’d like. Try it out at http://www.melittahoneycup.com/home

KJFG No. 5

Three professional musicians — the Bear, the Rabbit and the Wolf — are rehearsing in the woods, but they quickly have to make themselves scarce after a hunter ambles onto the scene. This 2007 short is the work of Hungarian animator Alexei Alexeev. If you like this one, he has a funny series of YouTube shorts featuring the hunter disrupting this same trio of woodland creatures.
