Fresh Guacamole is a 2012 American animated short film written and directed by PES, (Adam Pesapane). The film was nominated for the Best Animated Short Film award of the 85th Academy Awards, losing to Paperman. At one minute 40 seconds, it is the shortest film ever nominated for an Oscar.
The film uses the technique of pixilation and shows a man's hands (the hands are PES's) making guacamole out of familiar objects, which become different items whenever they are cut, often depending on (unspoken) puns. For example, a baseball is cut in half and then becomes a pile of dice while it is being diced. Each of the objects also resembles an ingredient actually used in an authentic guacamole recipe. For example, a grenade with a billiard ball pit resembles an avocado, a baseball resembles an onion, a pincushion resembles a tomato, a green miniature golf ball (with an interior of Trivial Pursuit game pieces/wedges) resembles a lime, a green Christmas light bulb resembles a jalapeño pepper, and king and queen chess pieces resemble salt & pepper shakers. The end result is "fresh guacamole" served with a side of poker "chips".
