    What I want to know is who looked at an elephant and said, `Hm . . . I wonder what he`d look like jumping on a trampoline`

    This is probably the best post of the day. I agree with LordJonathan though, something about the first few bounces seemed odd to me.

    MNJ_gudluv: "it would have been a lot cuter if it was a baby elephant."

    Yes, it would have been way better if it was blue, and wore a cap with feathers on it, and if it wasn`t a trampoline but a rocket launcher, or if it had been a different movie than this one.

    Also, Star Wars would have been better if Obi Wan was taller and if Anakin had been a baby elephant, and if it took place on earth instead of in space.

    Carrots would have been better if they`d been apples.


    ...


    Enough sarkasm.
    Brilliantly made flick this, that elephant is spot on, the details are remarkably crisp and clear.
    Foley`s brilliant too, tiny details, like the squeak of a foot against the floor.
    Subtly silly.

    I think that`s the whole irony of this clip: the fact elephants can`t jump. They also don`t like to have more than one foot off the ground at the same time. (I love spreading pointless information.) Doesn`t stop you from trying though! ^.^
    Very nicely made clip; the elephant looked so real. The things you can do with a computer...
    I wonder what people 50 years ago would have thought had they seen this clip. Would they have been able to understand it was a fake, seriously?

    The circus would be a lot better with elephants like that.

    "Hey, look at the elephants, they`re standing on their hind legs and leaning on each other. That`s kinda cool, you know, I guess, sort of. Oh wait, look! They`re gonna do another trick! Oh wait..nope, nevermind, they`re doing the same trick again."

    ^^hehe, funny.

    Elephants are pretty amazing creatures even without jumping on trampolines. I didn`t know that they could actually use their trunks as a snorkle until I was in fourth grade and did a project on the african elephant. Before the project, I thought an elephant had only done that in Tarzan.

    duncstar:

    As humans, we`re more familiar with how humans move. The more realistic the body is, the more the flaws in the movements stick out. CG animal movements are just as accurate at CG humans, but they look totally realistic to us because we aren`t as familiar with how real animals move.

    It`s called the `uncanny valley`.
