Sometimes a video needs no preamble. All you need to know about Patrick Jean's short film Pixels is that it's about a bunch of 2D video game icons who enter our world and begin attacking New York City. I think anyone of a certain age is instantly sold on that premise alone. And, well, there really isn't a whole lot of information available beyond that, anyway.

It looks like it should be a commercial for something, but as far as I can tell it's simply a short film made by the French group One More Production. They've got a nice collection of their other works on their official site, which are certainly worth checking out as well; I particularly like La Gaite Lyrique and their trailer for La Horde.

So please, do check out Pixels below. I guarantee you will not be disappointed*.

*I am, however, disappointed that I lack the nerd restraint to not point out that when 2D pixels are registered in a 3D world, they're called voxels, not pixels.
