The Future Of CGI: Rob Huebel And Paul Scheer Give Funny Or Die A Sneak Peek (VIDEO)

You may think that CGI, the computer generated imaging in movies, is usually saved for things like explosions or creating scenes in outer space, but you'd be wrong. Plenty of regular, ordinary scene elements like lamps and bow ties benefit from computer enhancement too.

Some people might think it's unnecessary, but just look at the acting Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer put into their roles. It's really amazing.

The video may be a promo for the Critics Choice Awards, which Huebel and Scheer co-hosted on Jan. 12th, but we think they're right about the future of CGI. Why use a prop when you can pay a human being to impersonate one? Recession: solved.
