When it comes to viral videos, there are few things that never get old, even fewer that don’t involve Hitler having a hissy fit or Isaiah Mustafa in a towel. But whether it’s Tiger Woods crashing the Cadillac or iPhone madness, there is nothing, nothing that could happen in the world that we would not love to see animated by Taiwanese CGI animators NMA. So it was like Christmas in August when Lindsay Lohan’s brief stint in the pokey got the treatment. From smashing up the Love Bug to a shoe-throwing cameo from Dad to the inevitable dropping the soap in the shower scene, this may be the greatest, guiltiest two minutes of pleasure you get today. Would it be greedy to ask — what’s taking so long with the Mel Gibson movie already? Because we cannot bleeping wait.
