Youtube Screening Room: I Met the Walrus

So I've been spending a solid chunk of my spare time perusing Youtube's brand new feature, the Youtube Screening Room, a portal within Youtube that showcases selected short films for mass consumption on the internet's most used video portal.

Though brand new, the site already has some absolutely impeccable shorts. In fact, I'm tempted to say that every piece featured on the site is absolutely worth watching, but there are a couple that have particularly struck me. One of which is I Met the Walrus, an animated short based on an interview conducted by a then 14-year-old boy with John Lennon after the kid snuck into the Beatle's Toronto hotel room in 1969. The interview itself is classic Lennon, but it's the animation which accompanies it which is literally unforgettable.
