Watch The Incredibly Charming Animated Trailer For ‘The Great British Bake Off’

With so many food shows hitting the airwaves, you sort of have to create something pretty damn engaging to capture the audience’s attention. Simple food porn shots just won’t do anymore. Perhaps it’s time to evoke that sense of childlike wonder.

The Great British Bake Off recently launched a trailer for their upcoming season that left us confused, enchanted, and hungry all at the same time. In the video, baked goods are singing and dancing about in a colorful display of confection all set to a pretty catchy tune of Paul McCartney and the Frog Chorus’ We All Stand Together.

Design Taxi reports that the stop-frame animated short was directed by Parabella Studios with the help of 4Creative. An ensemble of professional bakers and animators, through meticulous detail, brought 335 pastries and desserts to life in this one-minute video.

Check out the trailer for the upcoming season of the British reality baking series.

This Is The Trailer For The McDonald’s Origin Movie We Never Knew We Wanted

The-Founder-McD

Michael Keaton stars in an upcoming hollywood biopic based on Ray Kroc, the man who turned the small-time burger restaurant McDonald’s into what it is today.

The film, titled The Founder, centers on Kroc meeting the McDonald’s brothers, Richard and Maurice, and how he takes the company over from them. USA Today was first to get the exclusive trailer of the upcoming biographical film.

It looks pretty awesome. Though, to be fair, we’d watch anything with Michael Keaton in it.

The Founder also stars Nick Offerman (Ron Swanson himself), Laura Dern and John Carroll Lynch. You can check out the trailer below. We’ve added a few different viewing options.

Here’s The NSFW Trailer For Seth Rogen’s New Sausage Movie

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the comedic duo behind such films as Superbad and This Is The End, have teamed up once again to tell us a story about the foods we buy at the supermarket.

It’s called Sausage Party.

The R-rated animated comedy revolves around a sausage named Frank, voiced by Rogen, who dreams of nothing more than to be purchased and taken home. When he and his friends finally get their dream, however, they’re horrified to see how humans really treat food.

Check out the totally unsafe for work trailer. It’ll kind of make you rethink that pre-lunch snack.

Kind of.

The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Reacts To That Awful Ghostbusters Trailer

The recent trailer for the 2016 Ghostbusters reboot has been met with less than favorable response. Since then, numerous reactions have been posted on YouTube to the trailer.

One of our favorite one comes from the villain of the original movie itself, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. The fictional mascot of a marshmallow snack from the Ghostbuster universe was a giant throne in our heroes’ sides in the classic film.

Now, he sits down to watch the new trailer.

Check out his hilarious and subtle reactions to every moment shown. Currently, the trailer has more than 25 million views and more dislikes than likes.

Who knows though, maybe they’re just saving the good stuff for the actual movie. Ghostbusters hits theaters July 15.

Craft Beer Now Has Its Own Movie

craft-beer-movie

The inner hipster in you just emerged from his disinterested ennui into a magical world of excitement and a loud YES! Because your favorite craft beer might just be featured in the upcoming documentary, Craft: The Movie.

While only a brief trailer (below) is available right now, the movie is set to be released next year, and is produced by Pixel One Productions based out of Vancouver.  No one has yet claimed ownership of the project, and while it seems to be kept under wraps for now, we know it will be full to the brim of our favorite brews.  In 30 seconds alone, at least five breweries are mentioned, and not all of them are even in the United States.  How’s that for fancy, artisanal brews? We can’t wait to see how the movie turns out, and can’t wait even more to watch it with a cold craft beer in hand.

This Gingerbread Trailer Is Just Another Sign That We’re Evolving

Question: How can you tell we (Americans, Internet users, people who eat food, whatever) are evolving?

Answer: Someone built a trailer out of gingerbread. A glorious lil’ thing we stumbled upon thanks to Miss Rachel Jones of Black Eiffel.

Were you thinking I’d say something lame like ‘science’? Well, you’re wrong.

You see, times have changed. Gingerbread houses just aren’t good enough anymore. What with gingerbread construction competitions going on all over the freakin’ nation, what once seemed the star atop the proverbial Christmas tree (except the actual star/angel/PC ornament of choice) has now become banal. Your gingerbread house has to be 20 feet tall and gourmet if you want it to mean anything.

Unless, of course, you don’t build a house. Branch out! Break down the cookie-cutter walls. Be your own person! Try a gingerbread trailer! Or a gingerbread laptop! In fact, were we, Americans/Internet users/food consumers, ever meant to build houses exclusively? Gingerbread and frosting are more than the much tastier brick and mortar of the food world. The possibilities are endless! You are bound only by your own imagination!

And now that you’ve been inspired by this impassioned plea, go forth, Amer-inet foodies. Go forth and create.

Oscar Mayer’s New Ad Campaign Suggests ‘Have Bacon, Will Travel’

How much are fire breathing, fortune telling and couch crashing worth? 35 packs of bacon, apparently.

Granted it’s not just any bacon. No, Oscar Mayer’s new frontman Josh Sankey was only sent out with the good stuff–that is, OM’s new Butcher Thick Cut Applewood Smoked Bacon–normally worth about $9 for your standard 22 ounce package. And it’s probably a good thing, because if he wasn’t, heavens knows his bacon-for-board stunt in this, the most baconed-out, fame-seeking, social media-crazed nation in the world, probably wouldn’t have worked.

The premise is simple: Sankey has two weeks to get from New York to Los Angeles using only a truck and a trailer filled with 3,000 pounds’ worth of pork fat strips. He’s free to trade his dowry as he pleases, having already swindled his way into, among other things, a New York Jets game and most recently, onto the couch of one Dan the firebreather.

Tom Bick, Oscar Mayer’s ad and marketing director, explained: Butcher Thick Cut “is the new gold standard in bacon,” he said, and “worth its weight in gold,” making the whole experiment just a little bit easier to swallow. Still, chances are most of Sankey’s bacon-fiending friends are less about the bacon or even being Good Samaritans and more about the novelty of it all, but with nearly 500 miles of travel behind him already, it doesn’t seem like anyone’s complaining.

The Great American Bacon Barter started last Sunday in New York and will continue until September 23rd in Los Angeles, Calif. You can keep up with Sank’s shenanigans at baconbarter.com and on Facebook and Twitter.

See the initial Bacon Barter challenge video here:

So we’re dying to ask: what would you trade for a brick of bacon? How about 20 bricks? Or maybe even the whole trailer? Sound off in the comments!
