It’s not a pop-up or an artist’s book, but we found this video so delightful that we wanted to share it with our readers. Old meets new, silent film meets sound track, it’s a mash-up that works. It’s only 1:37 minutes long.  Here’s the clip.

Laurel and Hardy were a comedy duo working in vaudeville and silent films in the 1920’s and 30’s. Filmmaker Michael Akkerman (Dark Knight, Taxi Driver, Midnight  Express) added the soundtrack, Oye Como Va, by rock and jazz fusion artist Carlos Santana. Mr. Akkerman managed to merge the two seamlessly.
