Thanksgiving has traditionally been a holiday for the celebration of family, and turning our hearts to the things for which we are truly thankful. For some it means that new job, for others their health, their family, their friends. The day has been long under seige, though, by the retail industry that seeks to make each Christmas and Hanukkah shopping season more lucrative than the last, and the holidays are in danger of becoming more about commercialism than finding and commemorating the joy in our own lives. has found the perfect way to explain the dangers of the phenomenon in their new humorous short, entitled Mad Max: Black Friday.

Some clever compositing and effects animation make Mad Max: Thunder Road into a fantastically funny yet poignant statement.

Enjoy – and from all of us at, Happy Thanksgiving. Save some flame-thrower charbroiled turkey for us.
