Big Toast

7th October 2019
   

A Bizarre, Food-Based Love Story

This four-minute animation is one of the most bizarre things I’ve seen in a while, though it is also one of the funniest, bizarre, but funny.

Toast, as in a piece of toast, used to date Egg, as in, an egg, but he lost her when she caught him in the toilets of a club with someone else, looked like Salami or similar.

Toast pines away for Egg whilst his friend, a head of lettuce, tries to take his mind of things and eventually says ‘let’s go out’.

They get ready, a funny bathroom scene…involving a piece of toast, and they’re in the club and, wouldn’t you know it, there’s Egg, with her new fella, another peace of Toast. But he’s a beefcake, underwear model piece of toast.

A dance off ensues, because, how else would Toast decide which of them could date Egg, and Toast wins, I mean, our Toast wins, but winning isn’t everything, as he finds out.

Big Toast is absolutely bizarre, how writer/director Sacha Beeley ever came up with the concept we can only image. But it’s here, it’s bonkers, but it’s funny and you should see it.
