Jon Benjamin Narrates This Wonderful Animated McSweeney’s Story “Ballad of a WiFi Hero”
Please, hero! Bring back The Google!
Have you ever wanted an old school video game-style animated version of the McSweeney’s story In Which I Fix My Girlfriend’s Grandparents’ WiFi and Am Hailed as a Conquering Hero narrated by Archer’s own H. Jon Benjamin? So did Vulture, so they made it happen.
The original McSweeney’s article by Mike Lacher appears in the new book The Best of McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, which is on sale now and can be purchased from them directly on their site. The sweet animation and killer music were done by Jessie Benjamin and Paul Sprangers respectively, and we’d kind of like it if they teamed up and brought every McSweeney’s story to life like this.
