JURASSIC PARK — We all remember the intensity of the anticipation of Christmas break when we were kids. Nothing could be better than the thought of no school mingled with the visions of sugar plums dancing in our heads.

But the harsh reality is parents probably didn’t feel the same way. They were likely worried (at least on some level) how they were going to stay sane while helping their kids fill the void of time before them.

Enter the daddy-daughter duo, Paul Hollingsworth and daughter Hailee, who came up with an epic idea that not only filled their Christmas break, but the months beyond. The pair decided to recreate “Jurassic Park” using Lego stop motion, because Hollingsworth wanted to “prove to Hailee that we can do anything with Lego,” according to the video.

They enlisted a lot of help from many friends and used about $100,000 worth of Legos, according to the video description, to create their funny and oddly accurate 3-minute video that will not disappoint. In fact, from the first notes of the dopey rendition of opening theme (that reminded me of this piece of joy), I knew I was in for a real treat.

And in case you’re wondering how making a stop motion video took less than three months, let’s pull the curtain back a bit. Hollingsworth is a professional VFX artist and stop motion animator who created the YouTube channel Digital Wizards with other professionals to make fan films of their favorite films, according to the channel’s description.
