World’s First Stop-Motion Animation Done with Fake Fingernails

It’s not a microscope stop-motion animation, but this stop-motion ad Kia created for its 2012 Picanto is pretty incredible. Over the course of 25 days and nights, they used 1200 bottles of nail polish to paint 900 individual fake fingernails. Each nail took a whopping 2 hours to paint.

To get something to go viral these days you need to go big, like spend six-months building a Rube Goldberg machine or assemble 250 DSLRs and flashes into an “LED” display.
