And yes, a stop-motion Lego version of The Wire might just be more proof Yahoo is stil capable of doing something fun. Stop what you're doing and watch this.

 
Pretty great right?  The video is actually the product of writer/director/editor Joe Nicolosi--whose other works include viral hits like KittywoodCSI: Legoland and Indie Mario Trailer, and props go out to him and his team as its the freshest thing we and the Twitterverse has seen on Yahoo in ages. And though we still don't know who at Yahoo commissioned Nicolosi for this viral content, Kottke reminds us that Marissa Mayer's has only been CEO for a day. Coincidence? Probably. But if she wants our advice, keep whoever or whatever made this doing what they're doing.
