What your minifigures do in the shadows

Lego.

Friend of children everywhere and bearer of the idyll of youth.

Little do you know that something sinister may be going on when you aren’t around.

To prove this outlandish theory, I planted cameras around the town to see what happens when they think they are alone.

Ok, nothing here. Just a curious child out a little late. Not sure what is so interesting about that tree in the first place, but who am I to judge. You really should be getting off to bed now.

Wait, what’s this?

Hey, you! What are you doing up this late, in full chef garb no less?

Hmm, he appears to have snuck in the back. Looks pretty shifty to me.

What could he possibly be doing?

Cooking? Surely he wouldn’t have to sneak around in the dark to perform such an innocent task.

No, no one actually breaks out the pots and pans for a midnight snack. There is something more going on than meets the eye.

Seems to have left his light on though. Hey, you think I’m made of money? I am the one paying for that, you know!

the minifigures are all just standing there. Staring. Not moving.

See, even the night watchman at the bank is just looking out the window. Not doing his job.

Wait, even the bank teller is working late.

And hey, you! The bank is closed! Go away!

Even the ever hopeful bank robber has paused what she is doing to contemplate the moment.

Clearly some sort of existential dread has rapidly spread among the residents of Lego City. Never making a sound. Never moving an inch. All for fear of what? I just don’t get it.
