The AV Club brings to attention these awesome videos made by YouTube user LUXE37, featuring some pretty incredible Japanese-styled stop-motion animated car chases. The scenery is insanely realistic and I love the 70s style Japanese vehicles used. Yes, that's a dead Japanese school-girl after a hit and run.

While the chases are more exciting than they have any right to be, with squealing tires, crashes, and the occasional explosion, the thing that makes the whole enterprise work is the smaller, quiet moments—a police car pulling into a gas station before peeling out in hot pursuit, or fire trucks lined up at the station, just waiting for the call. That, my friends, is acting.
