Laika’s stop-motion spin on TikTok quarantine fistfights is a must-watch

By now, you’ve probably seen some version of the #QuarantineFightChallenge on TikTok. (This one, from Zoë Bell, is still the best of the bunch.)

It’s simple enough to grasp. One person starts beefing with the camera to the point that they punch it. When the punch connects, we cut to the next person in the fight challenge chain getting “hit” and fighting back with a counter-punch/kick/whatever. And it just goes on like that until some presumably creative moment caps the whole thing off.

Like everyone else, the talented folks at Laika Studios are deep into their pandemic lockdown. And so the stop-motion animation studio behind Hollywood hits like Coraline and Kubo and the Two Strings came up with an inventive spin on the quarantine fight challenge that harnesses their strengths.

The tweet works as a not-so-subtle shout of encouragement for Laika fans to follow the studio on TikTok. But honestly, between their impressive resume of hits and the fact that they’re coming up with this kind of stuff during the pandemic, do you really need more encouragement?
