LOS ANGELES, Aug. 28 (UPI) -- Daniel Hashimoto, the Dreamwork After Effects artist who put his son in The Matrix and sent him through time is back with a new series of well-realized imaginings with Action Movie Kid - Volume 2.

Hashimoto, who was the lead 2D sequence production designer for Kung Fu Panda 2, has taken home movies of son James, dubbed Action Movie Kid, and inserted him into iconic video games such as Portal and Mario Kart.

Hashimoto also sends young James to scale an urban high rise, attack a fast-food intercom, and go skydiving from their home.

Originally posted in April, Action Movie Kid - Volume 1 currently has over 2.7 million views on YouTube. The sequel, published Sunday, has already racked up over half the views of its predecessor, with 1.7 million views in less than five days.
