The Lego turns 50

Posted by John Stoehr on Mon, Jan 28, 2008 at 8:57 AM

It's the 50th anniversary of Lego's. How many hours have I spent building imaginary creations with this wonderful toy? Countless. Since its invention in Copenhagen on Jan. 28, 1958, the company has made a staggering 400 billion Lego elements, or 62 bricks for every person on the planet. Lego's influence is so pervasive that even Eminem loves them. Well, at least his music was used in this wonderful short film using Lego's and the hip-hop star's alter ego, Slim Shady, to recast Shakespeare's tragedy of Macbeth. Enjoy.
