Japanese Schoolboys Recreate Iconic Pixar Clip

These bored schoolboys in Japan scored a viral online hit after videoing themselves recreating the Pixar screen shown at the start of their favourite movies.

The students who are from Tochigi Prefecture’s Utsunomiya Kita High School had decided to fill in some time after staying late at school while they were waiting for an extracurricular club to start up.

Although they often helped clean up the school and do other small tasks while waiting, on this occasion they decided to recreate the iconic Pixel clip shown at the start of films like Toy Story, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles and Monsters Inc.

@capsuleclover posted a side-by-side comparison of the student performance and the Pixar animated clip

In the clip shown on the screen a table lamp is seen hopping along the letters from the Pixar company name but finding it hard to stand, it leaps onto the letter “i” and squashes it into the ground before turning to face the audience with the bright light forming the dot of the “i”.

After they posted it online, the instantly recognisable recreation of the clip went viral notching up more than 3 million views.

Online commentators praise the imagination in recreating the scene and also the athletic ability of the students in recreating the letters with their bodies, and keeping still while being filmed.

The lamp that they were using, a Luxo Jr. lamp, was originally from a computer-animated short film produced and released by Pixar in 1986.
