Today’s lesson: Butt acting with Yahoo Serious

Most student animators have been tasked with making a character lift a heavy object. Here is something similar done by an actor, the Australian comedian Yahoo Serious, in his film “Mr. Accident” from the year 2000.  He finds a hubcap embedded in a wall, and puts a lot of work into pulling it free.  The horizontal nature of the effort, and the gyrations of his butt, (nicely emphasized by some grunts) add up to fresh piece of visual comedy.
