Watch: Hilarious 'Hot and Tasty' Animated Short About Drunk Friends
"Ohmygod look at that chicken!! Ohhh, so crispy… I want so much chicken!!" If you need a good laugh, this short film is a must watch! Hot and Tasty is an animated short film made by filmmaker Laura Jayne Hodkin. It's her final graduation project from The Royal College of Art (she finished it this year), and it's hilarious and original and totally crazy. Based on Hodkin's own experiences (of course!), Hot and Tasty is about two drunk girls who accidentally stumble into a chicken shop crime scene. It gets even funnier from here on out as they continue to make a scene without noticing anything going on. The animation style in this is super funky and fresh, just a tad wacky, but it's cool. This short is a nice dose of creative expression, and will make you giggle and smile (hopefully) which is sometimes exactly the hearty medicine we need. Enjoy.
