When you're a desk toy doomed to a stationary existence, you don't get out much -- unless you know how to use the Internet. Address is Approximate is a short stop motion film that imagines the toy "tak(ing) a cross country road trip to the Pacific Coast in the only way he can – using a toy car and Google Maps Street View."
