Boxing Tonight: GameBoy animated boxing cartoon is the best thing you’ll see today

Beyond the utterly trance-like GameBoy chiptune soundtrack (which has been given, let me assure you, Humbert’s excited chirrup of approval) it will not immediately be apparent why we, gadget-obsessed Control+C/Control+V monkeys, are posting Boxing Night, an absolutely brilliant animation by Camilo and SidAbitBall.

Part of the reason involves how Boxing Night was actually created. The chiptune soundtrack isn’t merely a stylistic affectation. According to the website, the animators created a method to synchronize animations with a GameBoy in realtime through a homebrew hardware interface.

But even if the whole thing hadn’t been accomplished on a GameBoy, we’d still post it. Unfortunately, to explain why, we’d need to spoil the plot. Hint: the spoiler’s in the categories.

Just hit play. This is inconceivably awesome. It’s the best thing you’re going to see all day.
