"Smokey, if you pick up that Wii-mote, you're entering a world of pain."

An enterprising guy at GameTrailers has put together the entire opening scene from The Big Lebowski using the Mii channel, machinima, special effects, some clever editing, and a whole lotta patience. Hopefully this is just one of the first Wii/Mii movies we'll see coming . Someone with even more patience and stamina could actually use the different mouths to animate full-on speaking parts. These guys changed the mouths up a bit, but even better animation will undoubtedly hit at some point.

Check out the video after the jump, and mark it eight, dude.
