Big Tex’s New Hands Are Creepy

The folks at the State Fair released a video this morning showing the CGI creation of Big Tex’s new hands, set to be unveiled in September. The most disturbing part of the video is — unless I’m mistaken — the lack of sound. Just a floating, morphing CGI appendage against a black backdrop. It’s a cutting-room floor Kubrick clip.

The fair also announced that it has raised $45,000 to rebuild Big Tex, which really doesn’t seem like that much. Anyway: hands.
