It may not have won its category, but the animated short film “Fresh Guacamole” was one of the coolest nominees at Sunday night’s Oscars. Seriously, watch for yourself. Don’t say you don’t have the time — “Fresh Guacamole” is the shortest work ever nominated for an Oscar. It’s only 1:36 seconds, to be exact.
The film by Pes was made for less than $100,000, took two months to shoot and another two months to edit. Coolest of all? It was produced without computer effects. The video has been racking up the YouTube hits and, we suspect, making people hungry for chips and guac.
