'Coin' Is A Superbly Animated Beat-Em-Up Fight Sequence (VIDEO)

The best videos are the ones you can watch over and over again, and they get better each time. Well, this is one of those videos.

Modeled on the "beat-em-up" video game genre popular in the 1980s and '90s (you know, the ones that scroll to the side, constantly revealing new enemies?), "Coin" shows a jaw-dropping fight sequence that begins when protagonist Donovan Murdock has his favorite coin stolen by some classless street thugs.

Murdock then proceeds to annihilate an unreasonably large number of adversaries, of all shapes and sizes, at a pace so rapid you'll have to watch it a second (and third) time to notice all the details.

"Coin" was created by a boutique animation studio in Long Island, N.Y., called Exit 73 Studios (whose artists have worked for Disney and Adult Swim). To them, we tip our hats to for the incredible amount of work that must have gone into the 3-minute vid. It was worth it, guys.
