Litany of Bunny Death

"Easter" is trending high on Twitter today. I'm not religious, but I do look forward to Easter because it signifies the end of Lent. (I give something up every year because it strikes me as a good exercise in self-discipline.)

So in honour of the day all my vices come back full-throttle, I'm sharing 'Chocolade haas' (Chocolate bunny). This piece comes from a preschool art project called "Big Art for Little People," produced by Cut-n-Paste (KRO Youth) in tandem with the Dutch Culture Fund.

Created by Lernert Engelberts en Sander Plug. It's a couple of years old, give or take a few months. The imagery, music and concept are all stunning; and as a kid, one of my most favourite things in the world to do was take a generous bite out of a hollow chocolate bunny. It's somehow similarly cathartic to watch chocolate bunnies melt in all kinds of provocative and curious ways.

(Okay, maybe not for everyone. I showed this video to a friend recently and she frowned and told me this is just sick.)

Props to the infinitely charming Diana for sharing with me.
