Stop in the name of love: Donkey Kong in stop motion

I motion to stop with the puns

You know what’s hard? Or at least terribly tedious? Stop motion animation. That didn’t stop YouTuber Guiz de Pessemier, however, when his Donkey Kong NES cartridge refused to work — even after he blew on it, no less. No, he wouldn’t bea-defeated. Wouldn’t be beadt. 

de Pessemier, with the help of his friends, recreated Donkey Kong in stop motion with enough beads to support a year’s worth of slumber parties. At the end you’ll see the CRT playing Donkey Kong that was used for reference to make sure the animation was done accurately. Wait. It was working the whole time?!
