It's A Bird (1930)

Animation (Stop Motion), Other Gems (Film Clip), Viral (Time Capsule)
[ 3:03 - from YouTube ]

Here's a fascinating stop-motion animation from 1930, created by a little-known early cinema auteur, Charley Bowers.  A bird lays an egg that turns into a full-sized automobile.  Bowers was a favorite of the Surrealists, and you'll see why quickly.  It's amazing to think how they even made this.
