Made in an impressive time span of 24 hours, “Dinosaurs In Love” is the official video for a 3-year-old London girl's song of the same name. Directed by Hannah Jacobs, Katy Wang, and Anna Ginsburg, the pastel work features two dinosaurs snacking on a cucumber and enjoying a party, before it takes a sad turn and shows the pair blown to bits by the Big Bang. The trio created the surprisingly tragic film using 2D frame-by-frame animation.
In late January, Tom Rosenthal posted a video on Twitter of his daughter Fenn singing the short tune that speaks frankly about life and death. Since then, it has garnered viral attention, although according to Tom, Fenn hasn't recognized her newfound fame. “She literally did this song, we listened back to it five or six times, and then she's on with the rest of her life,” he told BuzzFeed.
