What happens when you've got the tale of a man and a tiger leading the nation to abolish slavery and free the hostages while on the hunt for a terrorist leader in a flood-ravaged state who falls in love despite mental illness and meets a freed slave trying to rescue his wife, and a couple in their 80s all while singing beloved epic songs?

You might get a headache, or you might get "Les Zero Silver Djargo of Southern Pincoln," a mashup of cinematic proportions. That's right, it's clips from this year's Best Picture Oscar nominees cut into one two-ish minute short.

Oh, and in case you needed a refresher, those films are "Life of Pi," "Lincoln," "Argo," "Zero Dark Thirty," "Beasts of the Southern Wild," "Silver Linings Playbook," "Django Unchained," "Amour," and "Les Misérables." The 85th Annual Academy Awards, honoring the best in film for 2012, air live on February 24th. We've got the full list of nominees, of course!
