I'm sure this is how people actually think animation is done sometimes. What an awesome, funny video. On top of that, the guy is actually a FANTASTIC animator. Check it out, probably the best video you'll see all day!
Also, I get this weird thing lately. When something is poorly executed, it takes you completely out of the work because it's so jarring. When something is well executed, I'm taken out of it because I'm now trying to work out how the hell they actually did it! I can't win :(
