As we all know by now, actor Alec Baldwin was recently escorted off an American Airlines flight because of his passionate devotion to Words with Friends. Baldwin decried the move by the airline on Twitter, then the airline lashed out at him, and now, Greyhound bus is getting involved because, well, why the hell not?

In the midst of all this, Taiwanese news company NMA has seen fit to animate the whole incident. In the following video, they lay out the order of events, and throw in some opinion by having a cartoon Baldwin spell out the word "crybaby" on a Words with Friends tile board.
