Saint Hoax Sums up 2017 in 30 seconds

I think most of us are happy to push out 2017 and usher in 2018 in hopes of a less harrowing and heinous year. Certainly irreverent artist Saint Hoax feels that way. Saint Hoax Sums up 2017 in 30 seconds and rather accurately (although we are missing the wildfires and a few other tragedies) in this funny and frightening piece of animation starring Disney’s Snow White.

It has continued to entertain generations since its publication because, unlike other children’s books published in the 30s and 40s, it was about ‘the present’ as opposed to being about some 19th century Princess. Nor did it preach life lessons like Aesop’s fables, ordinarily a turn-off to children. Read more
