Something Broken? Give It A Good Bash
September 24, 2013

Ever notice how in the movies, when something mechanical or electronic is broken, a character will often give it a good smack to get it going, Fonzie style? Duncan Robson, a San Francisco animator, sure did. With a little help from Tv Tropes, he put together this supercut featuring characters from television shows and movies giving their juke boxes, cars, lockers and even transporter controls a good whack. Keep watching until the 45-second mark, when the thumps, dings and wallops start to coalesce into the beat of an oddly moving tune.
