Watch: ‘Scrat’s Continental Crack-Up’

By  · Published on January 6th, 2011

For years, scientists have known exactly how the continents got their shape and placement on the Earth, but they’ve kept it hidden from us because the truth is a bit too shocking. It’s also the cause of the dead birds and fish, the missing single socks in laundromats, and why the moon keeps turning you into a werewolf.

Fortunately, the fine folks behind the Ice Age movies have just released a fantastic short featuring their beloved Scrat – the Buster Keaton of pre-historic rodents.

Watch, learn and laugh:

Admit that your heart was warmed. Admit it.

The next installment – Ice Age: Continental Drift – is currently filming and won’t hit theaters until July of 2012, but hopefully that thing riding a T-Rex will still be involved.

Side note: Did you catch the Simon Pegg voice credit?

Side side note: They better make a short where he finally gets that nut. Or else.
