You Oughta Be in Pictures

Here's an interesting clip that has just shown up on YouTube... a very poor quality clip (obviously recorded by somebody's cell phone camera) of the Looney Tunes apparently telling the audience about movie theater etiquette before the picture begins. It originates from Japan (the user who posted it on YouTube says it ran before a showing of "Shrek the Third"). No idea what they are saying, but it makes me jealous that some folks get to see the LT characters before the movie begins... and all I get to see here are endless Pepsi and car commercials.



Anyone have more info? Or a higher quality clip?

That bit of animation intrigues me.
I can't quite clearly identify who directed that spot, but the animation looked great.
Wonder if there is plans for a NOrth America showing?

In Japan, the Looney Tune characters are mascots for Warner Mycal Cinemas.

I recognize that scene of the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote - a frame from it appeared in TV Guide a few years ago in their article about the 50 greatest cartoon characters ever.
