OMG Expo 86 has landed!


Every week or so I highjack a GIF from Vancouver Rising on Tumblr which takes archival videos and turns them into sweet animations. VISIT THEM and follow!

This week I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this Expo 86 one. Almost three years ago we teamed up with Science World to co-produce the 25th anniversary PARTY of the World’s Fair in Vancouver, and I shared a bunch of the collectibles that we have here in the office. THIS replica of the jet airplane landing below was one of them. So awesome!
