Fresh Guacamole is a 2012 American animated short film written and directed by PES, (Adam Pesapane). The film was nominated for the Best Animated Short Film award of the 85th Academy Awards,[3] losing to Paperman. At one minute 40 seconds, it is the shortest film ever nominated for an Oscar.[4]

After being nominated for an Academy Award the film was released along with all the other 15 Oscar-nominated short films in theaters by ShortsHD.[1][2]


The film uses pixilation to depict a man making guacamole out of obscure objects, which become different items whenever they are cut, often depending on (unspoken) puns. For example, a baseball is cut in half and then becomes a pile of dice while it is being diced. Each of the objects also vaguely resembles an ingredient actually used in guacamole. For example, a green decorative light bulb resembles a jalapeño pepper that transforms into Monopoly houses when diced, a pincushion resembles a tomato, a baseball resembles an onion, and a grenade with a billiard ball seed resembles an avocado. The end result is "fresh guacamole" served with a side of poker chips.
