What On Earth?

7 04 2009

Aha! I’ve finally figured out how to embed video. It’s not that hard, it turns out. Good thing, because I just rediscovered a great National Film Board animated short that’s well worth sharing: What On Earth?

It is the story of the Martian discovery of Earth, and their mistaken impressions about what exactly constitutes intelligent life on this planet. If you have about 10 minutes to spare, it’s worth a view. It’s quite funny, as well as a bit thought-provoking.

It would seem that not that much has changed since it was produced in 1967.
