Among all of the creative videos floating around on the Internet machine, 'A Girl Named Elastika' is definitely worth a watch, as its creator Guillaume Blanchet demonstrates her skill and fine tactics for animating office supplies.

Rolls of paper are channeled into roaring waves, pumping dance music follows hilarious parodies of Tom Hanks' famous lines in Castaway, all of which create a hilarious and inventive clip.

It's a stop-motion short that tells the brief story of a girl who leaves her home to pursue adventures around the world. Even if you're not watching it for the story, the artist's ingenious use of thumbtacks, rubber bands and paperclips will make you look at your plain old office supplies in an entirely new light.
