Action Movie Kid

Plenty of kids have their parents posting adorable videos of their kids all over Facebook, whether they're singing, being funny, reading, or doing something amazing that everyone has to see. But DreamWorks Animation animator Daniel Hashimoto wanted to give his kid something to remember, so he's taken some really short videos of his son playing around at home and at the toy store, and turned them into mini-action movies. His son James is like an adorably clueless superhero, shooting big guns and waving around lightsabers all willy-nilly. I wish my parents were animators to make videos of me doing this now.

Here's Daniel Hashimoto's videos of his son James, or as he's known online, Action Movie Kid:

Thanks to Huffington Post for pointing out these awesome videos. You can see more at Daniel Hashimoto's YouTube channel ActionMovieKid. This is just awesome. It's like a kid's imagination come to life. There's something to be said about the potential for a movie where a kid's imagination comes to life. The cartoon series "Bobby's World" was a little bit like that, but doing it live-action with inspiration from blockbuster films would just be really fun. At the very least, at least James has one of the coolest parents around. Cool?
