The hilarious animated film about a ski rescue gone horribly wrong

We posted the link to this short film on our social a few days back. Here’s the story behind this cute as a button animated film featuring the coolest ski patrol dudes in all the alpine lands. 

Hors Piste has won 46 festival awards including a BAFTA for best student film. You can watch the six minute film for free for a month. 

Trust us it will be the BEST 6 minutes of your life you never paid for as rescue duo, Salami and Parmesan, attempt to save a stranded skier known as The Wounded. 

The film has been directed by French film makers Leo Brunel, Loris Cavalier, Camille Jalabert and Oscar Malet. With original music by Nicolas Peiron.

Is it just me or do those two ski patrollers look like someone we know?
