Toy Story 3 remake goes viral as brothers make entire movie IRL

Two brothers have gone viral after they finally finished their eight-year-long project of recreating Toy Story 3 shot-by-shot in a stop-motion style movie. 

Going viral on the internet is a little bit easier to do nowadays than a few years ago, but there’s a reason everybody is talking about this incredible video that Morgan and Mason McGrew.


The pair used the same animation method that has been used to create classics like Wallace and Gromit in the United Kingdom, as well as Wes Anderson’s critically acclaimed movie Isle of Dogs. Like any painstaking process, it takes blood, sweat, and tears, but above all – especially with something like this – it also takes a ridiculous eye for detail and some high-level patience to get everything right.

Toy Story 3 was supposed to be the conclusion to the iconic Pixar franchise.

The brothers premiered the video back on January 25, showing it off on the ‘Toy Story 3 IRL’ YouTube channel that they have used to give fans updates on the project as well as short clips and even a feature trailer. 


Their eight years of hard work all paid off though, as the shot-by-shot recreation of the now-iconic third Toy Story movie kicked off with a recreation of the classic Disney Movies and Pixar intros – completely in the stop-motion fashion of the movie. 

Though, seeing as they didn’t quite have the editing budget of Pixar, the brothers had to rope in a few extras to play a few key roles, especially with the emotional hand over of toys at the end between Andy and Bonnie.

Despite debuting on YouTube a few days earlier, the video gained a Twitter ‘moment’ thanks to PopSugar, with the brothers chiming in on their incredible feat, using it to give other motion about passion projects of their own.


Even though it took eight years, and there has been a new Toy Story movie released since, its hard not to be impressed by their work.

Will there be a follow-up surrounding Toy Story 4? Who knows, but we’re sure the internet wouldn’t be against it. Hopefully, it wouldn’t take nearly another decade either. 


Twitch streamer Jinny stunned as man tries to sell her drugs on stream

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.


Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.


“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny's Twitch chat
Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.


“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.


“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
