Watch this stop animation film with JCB and Cat toys

It’s Monday morning, and we know you don’t feel like working yet, so we’re here to help. This sweet stop animation video should eat up about 2:38 of your morning. We especially enjoyed the usage of die-cast models from both JCB (a backhoe) and Caterpillar (a mini excavator, later in the video). This writer actually has that mini excavator model, which has cool little interchangeable attachments (I’m playing with it right now). Of course, the best part of the video is that it’s scored to the “Theme From The A Team,” which is the ultimate get-shit-done music when doing any sort of work. Big props to Jonathan Minns, a graphic designer who made this.
