The Fifty Shades of Grey trailer is so much better in Lego form

Because of course it is

The trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey is murky, melodramatic and slow-moving. It wears the threat of seduction like a red dress made entirely of sequins. A pressurized remix of Beyonce's "Crazy in Love" creaks in the background. The only thing it's missing? Small plastic toys.

Fifty shades of Legos

Maybe that's what YouTube user Antonio Toscano was thinking when he recreated the trailer using nothing but Legos. Actors Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan? Legos. Shiny elevators perfect for a secret rendezvous? Legos. Dinner party? Legos. Helicopter? Legos! Here's something else: When Lego people kiss, it kind of looks like they're fighting with their faces.

The original trailer is below, for comparison.
