How about a guacamole recipe that includes hand-held grenades, golf balls, dice and poker chips? These unconventional ingredients appear in the stop-motion film Fresh Guacamole, which has been nominated for an Oscar.

Fresh Guacamole is the briefest film ever to be nominated for an Academy Award. The film was directed by Adam Pesapone, aka Pes, a master of stop-motion food films. Although the film is only 1 minute and 45 seconds long, it required four months to complete, a team of technical experts and a budget of more than $50,000, according to the New York Times.

So is the film that good? Watch the Oscar-nominated short below and tell us what you think in the comments below.
