Pixar Week Day 2: Geri's Game (1997)


Welcome to Day 2 of Pixar Week!  Today we are watching Pixar's short film, Geri's Game.  If you don't know who he is, go re-watch Toy Story 2, you see the guy who fixes up Woody?  Yeah?  That's Geri!
So we start out in a park with Geri setting out a Chess set, after he finishes he puts his glasses on and makes his first move.  Geri then takes his glasses off and walks around to the other side of the table and makes his move.  Geri without the glasses is cockier and laughs every time Geri with glasses makes a bad move, while the Geri with glasses is more calculated and quiet. 
It continues going back and forth for the next 2 minutes, as we see Glasses continue to lose,  before Glasses fakes a heart attack, while No Glasses checks himself to make sure he's still alive, and looks under the table.  While No Glasses is looking under the table, Glasses sneaks back up and switches the board around so he has the winning side. 
No Glasses finally realizes that Glasses switched the board around, and pushes his last piece over in defeat.  Glasses makes the pay up motion and No Glasses hands over his dentures. 
The End.
I remember seeing this short as a kid and being creeped out by the dentures, course at that age all old people scared me.  Now that I look back, it's a cute short, kind of sad that he's all alone, but he looks like he was having fun.  Tell me what you guys think down below in the comments or hit me up on Twitter (@ohmyskittles13) and feel free to join in on Pixar Week!
Hope you all have a great day!
