Which particular effect are you talking about?

its the effect of the video looking like a bunch of pictures put together instead of smooth flowing video

It is a bunch of photos put together in a technique called stop motion video.
Takes a lot of planning, but it's still just one picture at a time. Do a search for "stop motion video" online and you'll find all kinds of discussions about how to do it.
They did a great job, by the way. I thought the video was very entertaining.

Half of it is stop motion, and half of it is just dropping frames from continuous video to match the stop motion effect. You can even cheat a lot by compositing different elements seamlessly.
Like Phil said, it takes a lot of preproduction detail to make something work like they have. It's not just one trick, but a bag of tricks.
