Pixar-style animated short from Japan delivers flying pigs and lightsabers

If you’ve ever wanted a peek inside the world of everyday Japan, Tokyo Cosmo, a new animated short, may be one of the most stunningly accurate looks you’ll ever get.

Rendered in a style very similar to the work of many Pixar classics, the four-and-a-half-minute clip, directed by Takahiro Miyauchi and Takuya Okada, takes us inside the home of a woman with a fantastic imagination. Her imagination is so powerful that a simple household nuisance soon becomes an epic struggle. Things get so crazy we even get to see a courageous flying pig, a city-destroying monster and a giant lightsaber.

I initially thought, “OK, so this is just like every random makeup app that imposes makeup onto a selfie.” But then I noticed the movements of the model’s face, and just as the accuracy of the technology set in, I realized that the term “electronic makeup” is a crazy understatement.

Watch for yourself. The facial transformations that happen, one after another before your eyes, are amazing.
