Playstation All Stars Immortalized in Stop Motion Animation Tonight - News

By Karl Koebke, November 26, 2012

I'm not usually one to write up a news article for what is basically a commercial, but there's something about this one that I just love.  The team behind Adult Swim's stop motion animation show, Robot Chicken, was asked to make a skit using characters from the recently-released brawler PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale.  Based on the preview provided, it should make for some really entertaining, nerdy humor.  

Robot Chicken is one of the best shows on Adult Swim, with jokes stemming from a mix of nostalgia and classic nerd culture like the Thundercats or Transformers, to more general humor about a tooth fairy getting in the middle of a domestic dispute or jackasses trying to imitate Jackass.  It'll be interesting to see how far they were allowed to take the PASBR concept into irreverent humor or if it'll be a bit kinder due to its commercial nature.  Either way I'm definitely going to tune in to Adult Swim at 10 EST/PST tonight to check it out for myself, and if you like the sample below I suggest you do too.
