The Biggest Smart Props for your Dumbest Small Hands

first_img For absolutely no reason at all, I’ve spent a lot of time recently thinking about small hands and the (sometimes) pathetic men who have them. And you know what goes great with tiny hands? Over-sized movie props that make those little digits look even tinier. So as we all strap for years of pitiful, cloying, small, small hands in our good, normal-sized lives, let’s all enjoy these big movie props.1. The Big Laptop from Rob Dyrdek’s RidiculousnessBefore Tosh.0, skateboarder Rob Dyrdek hosted Ridiculousness, another show about watching people fail on the internet. And how did he show off these viral clips? On a gigantic laptop set. That sure does make his hands look small!2. The Big Phone from Top Secret!Look at how small this fascist’s hands look holding this jumbo phone in Top Secret!, a 1984 comedy from the folks behind Airplane! and The Naked Gun.3. This Big Gummy BearLook at his wee hands holding that big bear!4. The Big Ant from Honey, I Shrunk the KidsHoney, I Shrunk the Kids is chock full of huge props and dangers for the tiny actors to avoid. But the human hand looks downright laughable next to the fearsome large mandibles of a big ant prop.5. The Big Ant from Ant-ManYou know everything we just said about the big ant in Honey, I Shrunk the Kids? That applies to the big ants and Ant-Man, too. No matter how much of a superhero Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang is, his hands are just so, so tiny next to his over-sized insectoid allies.6. The Big Human Body from Fantastic VoyageA lot of these examples so far have been apples and oranges. A human hand might look small next to a big ant or phone, but direct comparisons are far more effective. In Fantastic Voyage, though, our heroes shrink themselves into the human body, and nothing makes a hand look smaller than a much, much bigger human hand.Grodd bless America!
