"Bing"-in in the Holidays!

When the head honchos at Microsoft "Binged" the word festive on the interwebs, we're pretty sure they got this as a result.  Naturally, they decided to award us with a with a trio of commercials because we got the Holiday Spirit like that.  Check out what we and our friends at eightvfx cooked up!

More to come.  Stay tuned!

This setup fooled many Buddies when it was here

Kitchen Nightmare Premiers Tonight!!

Spy vs. Spy

Watching Harv and Towner play checkers in the Winnebago is like watching the Black Spy and White Spy go at it... all mayhem and mischief.

Luckily, the folks at MAD were around that day and were inspired enough to let Buddy take a crack at the iconic characters.  Here's a sneak peek!

TPS Reports... Dino style.

The only thing that can make another Collegehumor & Buddy Systems collaboration more kick-ass is if you added dinosaurs to it.  Ah, yeaaaaaaaah... looks like we got the memo, Bill Lumbergh.  Click HERE to view.

Excuse me, I believe you have my stapler...

Yeaaah... I know it's stop-motion, Ethan, but could you animate a little bit faster? That'd be great...
