Stop-Motion Brooklyn Bike Tour

The folks at Brooklyn Brewery (take a look at their website here, if you are so inclined) have unveiled a pretty cool promotional video showcasing their hometown and namesake. It’s a bike tour of Brooklyn, but instead of a straightforward video of a bike riding through Brooklyn (boring!), it’s a stop-motion presentation made up of more than 3,000 still photographs.

To be honest, the phrase “bike tour” doesn’t really do the video justice, as the camera zooms in and out of various Brooklyn cafes, movie theaters, record stores, and more, all in glorious stop-motion. So yeah, it’s pretty cool and definitely worth a minute of your time.

You can see the video for yourself below.  Just keep in mind that actually bicycling through Brooklyn is a little less whimsical than this.
