Lego Inception looks trippy, adorable


The playful atmosphere of Lego video games is difficult to mistake. Combining slapstick silliness with a willingness to shatter the fourth wall for the sake of visual gag, the various Lego games share a unified feel no matter what movie the individual games are based upon.

Fan-made trailers and films that capture this unified feel are rare treasures and stand out from the host of stop-motion Lego videos currently on YouTube. Some of these stop-motion videos are damned funny in their own right, but they don't really jive with the humor seen in Lego Batman or Lego Indiana Jones.

That's why I was a bit wary when I came across a trailer for Lego Inception. After watching it parody the iconic Inception Trailer almost perfectly, I found that my wariness was misplaced. This trailer is so good it almost makes me wish Lego Inception was coming out in December instead of Lego Lord of the Rings.


Almost.
