The Lego Movie

Everything is awesome because Warner Bros. is. streaming The LEGO Movie on YouTube all day

If you need something to do on Black Friday besides elbowing the unwashed masses for doorbusters or standing in lines for hours at a time, or if you’re still recovering from the epic food coma from yesterday, YouTube has some awesomeness for you.

Brick Friday means Warner Bros. is celebrating the recent release of The Lego Movie 2 trailer by streaming The Lego Movie on YouTube for 24 hours, so you can at least turn off that barrage of email sale notifications and zone out of all the Black Friday-Cyber-whatever-weekend hype for an hour and 45 minutes of your life. Just don’t make the mistake of sipping $58 coffee while you kick back.

There’s an ultracool intro from Chris Pratt—in the flesh, not in the plastic. By the way, did you know his character has a pet raptor in the sequel? Because he does.

The dinosaur isn’t Blue, but it does roll over more like a dog than a carnivorous reptile that could pop off those removable heads with its teeth. If you want to see more dinosaurs in LEGO form, Jurassic World also got immortalized in bricks. It will fulfill every desire you’ve had to play with toy dinosaurs again.


Don’t we all just need a feel-good movie after overstuffing and overshopping ourselves? There are even a few teasers for The Lego Movie 2 throughout, and they don’t really play like commercials but more like glances into the future of LEGO existence.

If you have the day off, use this chance to laugh at the megalomania of President Business without risking a pink slip. Like Cloud Cuckoo Land, it will make you forget about everything depressing in the world for a while. You’ll get the feeling you’re even better than the prophecy said you’d be.

By the way, if any of you ‘90s kids noticed that the Beastie Boys’ Intergalactic is the trailer soundtrack, you’re even more awesome.
