Viral Panda Video Set to Become Full-Length Motion Picture


The viral video of a panda sneezing is going to be turned into a feature mockumentary. Lesley Hammond and Jenny Walsh, two nature photographers who captured the 16 second clip back in 1999, have secured $1.3 million to make The Life and Times of Sneezing Baby Panda. The Hollywood Reporter says the full-length movie will “employ the techniques used in Forrest Gump or Woody Allen’s Zelig before that to place the ancestors of the Sneezing Baby Panda in crucial roles throughout history.” Thanks, Internet.
