Animated redux of the video

Oregon’s Exploding Whale continues to inspire creative types. Last year, the Exploding Whale was the subject of a successful one-man show and a WikiWorld comic strip. And now Abdul Hameed Gamiet has released an animated retelling of the well-known incident. Gamiet used the audio track from the the original video and then created his own “reinterpreted” visuals.


While the new visuals are occasionally humorous (if not reminiscent of The Simpsons!), Gamiet’s decision to use the original newsreel’s audio track was a wise one. You just can’t beat Linnman’s deadpan delivery. The combination is an entertaining remake of an unrivaled classic.

You can watch the animation on YouTube or in the video player below:
