In this animated short based on Bruce McCall’s New Yorker cover, two mummies awaken from their ever-lasting slumber in the Metropolitan Museum and have the date of their eternal lives. They hit the town as classic New York tourists / love-birds: taking in a ballgame (and catching a fly ball!); enjoying the ambience of Central Park (on roller blades!); shopping on Fifth Avenue (and buying lots of stuff they really don’t need!); hitting Times Square (and not looking any weirder than any of the other weirdos there!); and taking in a romantic view from the top of the Empire State building before returning to their resting places (with souvenirs!).

Based of the New Yorker Magazine cover by Bruce McCall. These images are used in animated form by permission.
