Ed Sheeran’s hit song gets a brand new video, featuring enough building blocks to fill a life-sized “Lego House.”
The new version of Sheeran’s “Lego House” hit the Web, featuring a shot-for-shot remake of the official video, using the titular Lego toys in the place of real-life actors. This remake is painstakingly accurate to the original, following a plastic version of Rupert Grint as he mopes about a Lego brick world until encountering the Lego-style Sheeran himself.
The two videos are displayed on a split screen with the live action on the right and the Lego stop motion animation on the left. The result is as uncanny as the resemblance between Ed and Rupert themselves.
From the costumes to the set pieces, this new Lego-style “Lego House” nails the original, and the use of a Harry Potter Ron Weasley Lego figure as Ruper Grint’s character from the video is particularly inspired toy casting.
The new video was created, executed and “Lego-ed” by Dylan Woodley, whose Insomniac Animations has done similar Lego-style videos, including a send-up of Foster The People’s “Houdini.” Check out more of his work HERE.
