Wow that's some strong cheddar! The first half of the video is actually quite disturbing, but in the second half you come to realize that John Nolan is an animatronics expert. Some of the other videos on his website are also quite interesting. One even shows some "behind the scenes" footage of the animatronic mouse used for the Cheddar video.

Yes. The first part is disturbing, but it all comes out OK in the end. However, I'd just as soon not have watched it in the first place.

ok, full disclosure. i've had that video bookmarked for a few months now (well, at least the youtube version of it). my kids can't get enough of it.

it's even rotated into the good night routine, displacing the never ending quest for new disney princess google image pix and star wars lego mini figures to scout out...

Awesome. You can find the film reviews here: press
Wiki To some, the glass is half full. To others, the glass is half empty. To an engineer, it's twice the size it needs to be.

Thanks for the video.

My kids have pet rats. I'm actually quite fond of them, myself.

I actually flinched at the crucial point in the video.

Dan,
I have also been exposed to pet rats, and think they are some of the best pets ever. They are absolutely hilarious, and incredibly intelligent.

I was similarly concerned mid-way through the video.
