As we sit around the holiday table this year enduring our mom asking why we're still single and our dad asking when we're going to get off his cell phone plan and pay our own bill, we can't help but wish that our parents were actually these guys.
Lilly and Leon Mackie had a new baby named Orson recently and they made a big move from New Zealand to Sydney, Australia. So they had lots of cardboard boxes, they had a newborn baby who probably wasn't sleeping through the night and they had a lot of time on their hands while said baby wasn't sleeping. So with those powers combined…
…you get Cardboard Box Office! Yes, these awesome parents are recreating iconic movie scenes using cardboard and their adorable baby. When it comes to creativity, Lilly and Leon go above and beyond the term "above and beyond."
Lily told Buzzfeed that after they posted the first picture ("The Life Domestic," an ode to The Life Aquatic), people were begging for more.
"We wanted to depict our messy and sleep-deprived new life of raising a baby," she said. They've already done Star Wars, Jurassic Park and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, among many others, but their dream movies include anything John Hughes and Leon "trying to find a way to sugarcoat" Goodfellas.
