The Ashlad’s Older Brothers

I tend to notice small things in life. Combined with some pondering, they can make me unusually happy. Today I proudly present one of my favourite curiosities of all time:

The priceless, harassing laughter of the Ashlad’s older brothers.

The sound clip is taken from the legendary stop-motion animated short by Ivo Caprino, which is based on the Norwegian folk tale “Askeladden og De Gode Hjelperne” (English: “The Ashlad and His Good Helpers”) [ref. 02:43].

For some reason, DailyMotion.Com has taken the liberty to publish the full original movie online. I believe Caprino would have flipped in his grave if he knew. And I wouldn’t be surprised if his family company considers even more advanced gymnastics alive!
