I'll never look at

Jacob's LEGOs the same again!
Introducing a LEGO version of the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer created by stop-motion animators Antonio and Andrea Toscano.  
Unlike their previous LEGO trailers for films like Star Trek Into Darkness and Man of Steel, this one has generated a lot of social media chatter and not in a good way
Check it out for yourself and let me know what you think, should they have stayed 50 feet away from tying 50 Shades to 50 Bricks?

In response to parental backlash, Antonio even posted a disclaimer on YouTube but, just like Anastasia, the comments just keep on coming (sorry had to go there)

"Please note this: Lego Group is not even remotely involved in this video, except for the fact that I have bought a lot of their products during my life. Universal Picture is not involved in this, this video is not at all part of a promotional campaign for the movie, I am not getting any money for it and I don't care at all for this movie to be an audience success or not. This video and all the others on this channel are just made for fun in our free time, whether they involve Tony Stark or Christian Grey. If you come here looking for fun, maybe you can find some. Thanks for enjoying it. I'm sorry I haven't time for answering all the disappointed comments, but please just try to be polite when sharing your opinion, thanks."

Personally, after all of the casting hype, not a fan of who they settled on to play Christian and Anastasia especially, Dakota Johnson and so, prefer the creativity & fun of Fifty Shades of Bricks and Beyonce's "Crazy in Love" bellowing in the background doesn't suck either.

Here’s the original trailer for comparison... 

50 Shades of Grey, the real one, premieres Feb 13, who's going?
