If being excited about Skyrim was a race, then animator Harry Patridge would probably take the gold.
British animator and film maker, Harry Partridge, has made a short cartoon proclaiming his excitement for the upcoming fifth Elder Scrolls game, Skyrim. Knowing that mere words weren’t enough to convey his joy, Patridge set them to music and made them into a song.
The video opens with two friends talking over a dinner. When Harry learns of the teaser trailer for Skyrim, he is palpably excited. His friend urges him not to get too excited however, as the trailer is essentially just an “old guy doing a voice over.” Harry heads home, and pays no heed to his friend’s advice. He bursts into song, waving goodbye to all the games he’d used to fill the gap after Oblivion. At the end of the song, Harry gives a clear indication of how excited he is. I won’t say what it is, but you probably shouldn’t watch this at work, if you catch my drift.
Harry Partridge also created the Saturday Morning Watchmen cartoon back in March 2009, which recast the Watchmen as characters in an eighties cartoon. He currently creates his animations as a hobby, but says that he hopes to one day do it professionally. Watching this, and his other videos, its safe to say that he has the talent to do so.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is coming to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on November 11th.
