Fresh Guacamole

Fresh Guacamole is a 2012 American animated short film written and directed by PES (Adam Pesapane). The film was nominated for the Best Animated Short Film award of the 85th Academy Awards, losing to Paperman. At one minute 41 seconds, it is the shortest film ever nominated for an Oscar.

The film uses the technique of pixilation and shows a man’s hands (the hands are PES’) making guacamole out of familiar objects, which become different items whenever they are cut, often depending on (unspoken) puns.
