How Original is Kirby's Epic Yarn?

Nick sent me this video tonight, but refused to post it himself, so I'm doing it...



Thought Kirby's Epic Yarn was awesome looking, like I did? Now how would you feel if you found out it was actually done before? Yup, in a 1992 Japanese commercial for Kirby's Adventure on the Famicom, completely done in stop motion. As you can see, the style of Epic Yarn is almost identical to this commercial, give or take some tweaks in Kirby's modern design.

Is that a bad thing? No, the game still looks freaking awesome and the animation is great, thanks to computers, it's smoother than any 2D platformer I've seen before. Who knows? Maybe Good-Feel did look at this commercial as inspiration for the game's unique style, if not, whatever I'm still really pumped for the game.
