The talents of Taiwan’s most famous animation studio are usually reserved for reenacting top tabloid journalism and memetic news, but Next Media Animation recently lent its uncanny cartoon abilities to one of the longest-lasting web series on the internet.
Rocketboom creator Andrew Baron told me how the relationship came to be:
We hunted NMA down because we love their work and thought it would be fun…It’s the start of a new collaboration. The clip that went up on Friday was sort of an experiment for a news story that might typically be mixed in with a regular Rocketboom news day. We’ll probably sprinkle them in once a week or run them as full episodes when they can stand alone.
