Video: Iron Sheik - Very Animated People

Everyone is familiar w/ the concept of supergroups in music.  Blind Faith, The Traveling Wilburys, Temple of the Dog, Monsters of Folk, Them Crooked Vultures... NKOTBSB?  A collection of leaders in their industry who usually team up to create mediocre results and eventually break up.  JASH is a new Youtube channel following in the line of Funny or Die & College Humor led by supergroup Sarah Silverman, Michael Cera, Reggie Watts and Tim & Eric.  Its been being hyped for a while and it was interesting to see this, an animation, as their first real released video.

The short is an animated tale narrated by ol' WWF pro The Iron Sheik about being pulled over by the police while in a car filled w/ drugs with another former WWF'er, Hacksaw Jim Duggan.  I really dig the loose "Spumco"-ish animation style created by Australian animation house, Rubber House Studios.  This looks to be the first in a line of shorts entitled Very Animated People which looks promising if they keep the same format and style as this one.
