Well here's something you don't see every day -- a Lego portrait, made by an elementary school in Peabody, that morphs from Tom Brady to Bill Belichick, depending on where you're standing.

The video below is not CGI, but the actual result of over 100 hours and 22,500 Lego bricks, many of them angled to alter the image depending on its orientation. It was made by students at Brown Elementary in Peabody and is the brainchild of North Andover native Rob Surette, a Disney-employed artist who delivers motivational messages to schools, per the Boston Globe. Every student, faculty, and staff member placed three bricks in an assembly line over the course of three days before Surrette completed the project at home.

"The two images of Brady and Belichick are two amazing individuals who work hard and work together and create a thing that has a sense of pride, accomplishment, and greatness," Brown principal Lauren King told the Globe. "That is what we want to instill in our students."

Check out the finished result. It's astounding.
