Review: Ed Sheeran’s Lego Version of “Lego House”

Ginger-haired singer-songwriter just keeps getting better

By Enya Kuo

The music video for Ed Sheeran’s hit “Lego House” gets a remake—this time, with actual Lego bricks. In the Lego version released on April 11, animator Dylan Woodley painstakingly recreates the music video with Lego figures and pieces replacing the real-life people and objects. The results are frame-by-frame accuracy to the original video and delightful Lego versions of Ed Sheeran and Rupert Grint.

The two versions play on side-by-side screens, and the remake version mirrors the live action video perfectly. The plastic figures resemble Ed Sheeran and Rupert Grint in every detail down to Ed Sheeran’s messy mop of orange hair and Rupert Grint’s freckles. Even the scenery, furniture, and buildings in the remake are brick-by-brick replicas of the real-life objects from the original video. I could not help but adore the quirkiness of the whole video, especially when the Lego version of Rupert Grint holds a Lego helicopter in his round Lego hands. I know it sounds confusing, but it’s incredibly cute to watch.

The British singer-songwriter rose to fame in America around 2012 with the darkly lyrical “The A Team,” a song about drug addiction and prostitution. Since then, he has won two BRIT Awards and gotten a Grammy nomination. Ed Sheeran lives up to his eccentrically charismatic persona with this Lego version of “Lego House,” a video sure to make you smile.
