The Action Movie Kid videos are a series of YouTube videos that show a kid who seems to be living in an action movie world.

In truth, James is just a regular kid with a pretty awesome dad. His dad Daniel Hashimoto works as an animator for the Dreamworks animation studio. When he's not working, Hashimoto takes seemingly innocuous videos of his toddler son and uses his animating skills to turn them into action movie scenes. These awesome videos have to be seen to be believed.

In one Action Movie Kid, little Daniel is seen in a Toys 'R' Us store.There's nothing strange about the scene, except for the fact that he has a light saber and seems to be destroying the store shelves, causing toys to catch fire. Another video shows Daniel stranded on a couch as lava flows into the living room. A third shows Daniel jump on a shallow puddle of water and sink right into and disappear.
