For years, scientists have known exactly how the continents got their shape and placement on the Earth, but they’ve kept it hidden from us because the truth is a bit too shocking. It’s also the cause of the dead birds and fish, the missing single socks in laundromats, and why the moon keeps turning you into a werewolf.
Fortunately, the fine folks behind the Ice Age movies have just released a fantastic short featuring their beloved Scrat – the Buster Keaton of pre-historic rodents.
Watch, learn and laugh:
Admit that your heart was warmed. Admit it.
The next installment – Ice Age: Continental Drift – is currently filming and won’t hit theaters until July of 2012, but hopefully that thing riding a T-Rex will still be involved.
Side note: Did you catch the Simon Pegg voice credit?
Side side note: They better make a short where he finally gets that nut. Or else.
