"The Hunger Games" Re-Enacted by Beanie Babies (VIDEO)

Here's a way to experience "The Hunger Games" as never before: no, not in 3D, but in a re-enactment by Beanie Babies. Unless you've been living on another planet, or under a very large (and soundproof) rock, you've no doubt heard of the new movie "The Hunger Games," based on the absurdly popular book of the same name. Now you can view a version of the megahit story portrayed by the megahit stuffed toy from the 1990s. What could be better?

“The Beanie Baby Hunger Games," created by Jeff Luppino-Esposito & Jamie T. McCelland, is said to be true to the books. I have not yet read the books, but I know that they involve games, hunger, and a bunch of good-looking young people trying to kill each other. Wait, isn't that "Jersey Shore"?

OK, perhaps not. I do know that the lead character is named Katniss, which makes me think of catnip. And hearing the word "hunger" 20 times a day leaves me thinking of food constantly. I wonder what Pavlov and his famous pooch would make of that.

Even if you're not a fan of hunger, or of games, check out “The Beanie Baby Hunger Games," and leave your comments below on what you think of the video, the movie, the books, or your favorite sandwich. Oh hey, look, it's lunchtime!
