An Australian Lego enthusiast has painstakingly recreated one of the most iconic scenes from 1980's "The Blues Brothers" -- using nothing but the tiny toys.

Duncan McConchie, creator of Lego community website Bricktease.com, posted a frame-by-frame Lego remake of the famous Dixie Square Mall chase scene on YouTube. Since it was posted Monday, the incredible clip has had more than 32,000 views.

McConchie also posted a behind-the-scenes look at how he made the clip. He said he watched the chase scene "a heap of times" to make sure he got the details — from the kinds of shops in the mall to the characters' costumes — just right. He also had to painstakingly build a Lego Blues Mobile.

“I've been a fan of the Blues Brothers since I was really young and the chase through the shopping mall has always been a favorite,” McConchie said.
