Beans, beans, they're good for your heart, the more you eat, the more you fart.
So goes the popular children's song, which suggests that eating beans is quite good for you. But what the song doesn't tell you is that beans can also be bad for you. Really, really bad for you. Let's just say you better hope those farts are silent, because if not, they could be quite deadly...
That's the clever angle that visual effects studio Cinesite took with this hilarious faux baked beans commercial they just whipped up, which highlights the extreme dangers of bean consumption. Written and directed by Alvise Avati, the commercial is the very first animated short film to be made by the company, and it was created to show off the skills of Cinesite's visual effects artists. And those skills are very impressive, to say the least.
Perhaps it's true that in space, no one can hear you scream. Thanks to Cinesite, we now know that the same doesn't apply for farts. Check out their hilarious mock beans commercial below, which came to our attention courtesy of Ad Week!
