Mirlande Wilson, the McDonald’s employee in Maryland who was one of three winners $656 million Mega Millions jackpot winners, has a unique ethical dilemma on her hands. As part of a lottery pool with other McDonald’s employees, she had promised to share her winnings — but she now claims that because she bought this ticket separately, she’s entitled to keep her millions.

So what’ll it be? Either Wilson is a selfish and absurdly rich lotto winner or a generous and slightly less absurdly rich lotto winner whose coworkers no longer have to work at McDonald’s.

Caught up in the debate, as always, is demented animation studio NMA, which was last seen covering a certain theoretical physicist’s strip-club dalliances. The Taiwanese wizards spice up the Mirlande Wilson saga by adding a twinkle-eyed, stoned-looking lottery Jesus and a fight with Ronald McDonald using an enormous, Happy Gilmore–esque check as a weapon. Enjoy.

Before you get all up in Wilson’s coworkers’ grills for being sore losers, let me just say this: For tens of millions of dollars, wouldn’t you do the same? Wouldn’t you? Yeah, you totally would.

Taiwan’s Next Media Animation burst onto the scene with its the hilarious video re-enactment of what went down in the Woods/Nordgren household that fateful Thanksgiving night. Since then the group has cranked out brilliant clips about Brett Favre’s pecker, Carl Paladino’s campaign shenanigans, the Chilean miners adjusting to life underground, an Aussie rugby star getting blown by a dog, the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear, Conan O’Brien’s return to TV and the invasive TSA patdowns.
