You’ve surely seen the ultra-expensive Super Bowl commercials by now (and if you haven’t check out our round up), but I doubt you took time to recreate your favorites as stop-motion Lego animations.

That’s precisely what A+C Studios did, however, over the last 36 hours since the commercials aired.

Check it out below for some great Lego animation.

The UK-based animation studio used thousands of Lego bricks to recreate television spots that cost upwards of $4.5 million for the original advertisements, from the likes of T-Mobile, Skittles, Snickers, Budweiser and Toyota, as well as the Jurassic World trailer.

In “Brick Bowl”, you’ll get to see a Lego football fan sucked into his television, taking part and subverting many of the ads you might have seen on Sunday, including the Skittles arm-wrestling ad, the live Pac-Man commercial, the inspirational skiing spot, as well as the Kardashian selfie, the little lost doggie, the Brady Bunch and Danny Trejo spot, and even the half time show with Katy Perry and Lenny Kravitz.

It’s a fun take on one of the most popular sporting events in the world (this year’s game boasts 11.4 million viewers), all made with little plastic toy bricks. “Brick Bowl” was written and directed by Dan Richards, and co-written by Josh Hicks.
