Director's Comments

This was the follow up to the winner of the Nicktoons/Lego festival competition "Play Nice".  A second short was part of the deal as winner, and they asked me to do Spongebob Squarepants!  Long story short, they provided this song for a music video and this was the end result!  This was my second complete short, I think I might be on to something...  Hope you all like it!

Staff Review

This wonderful commissioned piece for TLG transcends the fact that it's a spot for Spongebob, and becomes a music video with some really impressive animation and infectious Christmas spirit.  Where Don't Be a Jerk succeeds is the acceptance of the medium and the utilization of this fact to maximum effect.  The animation of the larger model Spongebob is definitely a standout.  So don't be a jerk, and watch this film!
