YouTuber Makes ‘iPhone Sushi’ in Very Satisfying ‘Stop-Motion Cooking Videos’
A series of stop-motion videos have earned one Japanese YouTuber millions of views on the popular video-sharing site.
On YouTube channel Omozoc, “a person who likes to make stop motion cooking videos” strings together thousands of individual photos to create oddly satisfying clips of ordinary things being prepared into “meals.”
One recent video, which has so far generated over 8 million views, shows an office employee receiving multiple faxes telling him that he has been fired.
The message apparently drove him to a fit of rage, with him ripping off parts of his office outfit and making an entire sushi meal out of them.
Titled “Crazy Office Worker’s Night Meal,“ the video features an appetizing sushi meal made out of a necktie, a shoe, a sock, an iPhone, a calculator, and other random objects.
For instance, a green highlighter is creatively transformed into a stick of wasabi.
With everyday objects, the “crazy office worker” was able to make makizushi rolls, salmon roe gunkan maki, sea urchin gunkan maki, pickled ginger rose garnish, tuna sushi, egg roll sushi, hikari mono, squid sushi, and eel sushi.
In the video’s description, the uploader noted that the impressive video was made entirely using a stop-motion technique with no CG or Photoshop involved.
As an added treat, the viewer gets to feast on the delicious-looking meal through the camera. The video even comes with atwist ending that makes the entire meal preparation even crazier.
