Saw the 3-D trailer for this play in front of Monsters vs. Aliens this weekend. Even without the 3-D, Up looks multi-dimensional. See, that’s what I’d be saying if I were brainstorming in a marketing meeting. But since I’m sitting at home in my boxers typing this, I’m just going to say that I can’t wait for Up in the same way I can’t wait to take a shower. And I reek of last night’s indiscretions.
You don’t have to wait until I shower to watch the ALL NEW CLIPS of Up.
After the jump!
In the following clip, Pixar’s Pete Docter explains how the people at Pixar are so much cleverer than you, and how you could never come up with a concept as great as Up. Not really, I’m just jealous because I’ve seen pictures of Pixar’s campus, and it’s the closest to my brain’s representation of nirvana as I can come up with. So I hate them.

And this one at Disney’s official site, where Pete Docter says that Up may be Pixar’s funniest movie to date. Fantastic. As if "heartwarming," "charming," and "visually stunning" weren’t enough, now Pixar has to get into serious comedy. I bet the janitors at Pixar are happier than me. I bet they get paid in something stupid like "dream candy" and have to clean up John Lassiter’s skidmarks in the executive toilet shaped like Buzz Lightyear’s spaceship, but I bet they’re sporting smiles as big as the Cheshire effing Cat and whistling when they do.
In the meantime, I’m just sitting here in my boxer shorts, trying to work up a Lassiter-caliber #2 so I can take a shower.*
* The term "Lassiter-caliber" has nothing to do with the Pixar honcho’s size, and everything to do with his high rank within the company. (i.e. I’m looking to take one executive-class dump.)
