“The Wire” Gets Animated…With Legos

By: Amanda Crum - July 16, 2012

The enormously popular HBO show “The Wire”, which takes on different burning topics plaguing the streets of Baltimore with each season, is known for its realistic and gritty portrayal of urban life, which includes stories based on real-life experiences from the writers and their colleagues. So what better way to do an homage to it than with Legos?

Joe Nicolosi directed, wrote, and edited the short, which runs the gamut of the show’s themes. If you’re a diehard fan, you’ll probably love it. If you’re not too familiar with it, it may not make much sense…but who doesn’t love Lego people talking hard and swigging liquor?
