Afternoon funnies: finally the moon landing we’ve been looking for [video]

In an effort to showcase Cinesite’s creature animation skills, Beans, is a short film with a rather unexpected ending.

The mock commercial provides one minute of well-deserved afternoon fun. Written and directed by Animator Alvise Avati, the YouTube clip has since its release last week, gobbled up more than 1.4-million views.

What at first seems to be a boring flag planting ritual of America’s moon landing of 13 September 1959, turns into an interesting fiasco — and boy, do we like catastrophes! See for yourself:

Eating gas-friendly “Haynes Baked Beans” apparently makes you capable of farting uncontrollably in outer space. Who knew that letting one rip during an epic moon landing would determine your chances of being eaten by a giant purple alien creature?
