Laughing Squid has shared a new way to send online messages that’s totally not bogus. Crumbles is a web site that transforms text field messages into videos by assembling a series of rapid single-word clips from television and movies. Crumbles offers a preset dictionary of available vocabulary as well as customized themes for Homer from The Simpsons and the online series Bee And Puppycat.

Tell your girlfriend she’s special. Tell your boss that you’ve had enough of his shenanigans. The options are nearly limitless. The algorithm is so powerful—and available clips so bountiful—that even The A.V. Club’s abiding affection for its commentariat was easily captured in this clip.
