More friggin Estonian mythology!! Estonia's national epic is the Kavelipoeg, which is about an anti-hero who causes more problems than he solves because of his impulsiveness and tendency towards violence. Someone made a wacky, tongue-in-cheek short summarizing the Kavelipoeg as a children's story. The sound design is as excellent as the the short itself is ridiculous. The last minute or so is definitely worth watching.
