Surprisingly Cathartic: Video Animation Of Little People Getting Tossed Around Like Ragdolls

October 23, 2014


This is 'I've Fallen And I Can't Get Up', an animation created by Dave Fothergill testing a new crowd dynamics feature that causes characters to flail and struggle after getting knocked down. I don't know about you, but if the Giant Spinning Metal Bar Of Death were a ride at an amusement park, I would ride it. AND keep my hands raised over my head the whole time. At least until they're ripped off. What can I say, I'm a thrill-seeker. I tried pitching a Wal-Mart style Black Friday Trampling ride to Disney but they weren't interested. Your loss, Walt, those tea cups aren't going to keep people visiting forever.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to The Golden Ninja, who's easy to to pick out in a crowd of regular ninjas.

    This is truly best enjoyed with the classical orchestra performing Rage Against the Machine playing in another tab.

    The software used to make this is called Massive and costs 16,000 dollars.


  • Bad Boy Bubby

    This could be used for porn

  • GeneralDisorder

    I prefer Popcorn by Hot Butter. Not sure how to link. See if this works.

  • Robert Grimm

    I think I found Waldo.

    I've fallen and I...oh fuck it.

  • BeastmanAIDS

    The way they just use their faces to break their fall reminds of drunk people who trip and lose the protective reflexes of their arms.

  • Patrick Banks

    I like the kid at :14 who had just escaped the death clock (not sure if that's what it is, but that's what I'm calling it.) Naturally, he trips over one of the shaking corpses and goes into seizures himself.

  • Professor Spookypop

    I think my favorite one is the last guy to run in at the end. Shows up fist pumping, promptly trips and faceplants only to be the last one hit by the spinny death bar.

  • disqus_k2QxOV9H7Z

    Nobody can get up. It is like they are all drunk or having a seizure

  • Logan O'Brien

    Ain't nothin too new.

  • The_Wretched

    Looks like a republican combination health care and immigration center.

    @richellehowes:disqus my roomate's sister makes $89/hour on the laptop. She has been unemployed for 9 months but last month her check was $21432 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Read more on,.. http://MillionaireMakerbusiness201ȉhUZAv4r...

    Sure! Its always a "friend" who does these things. Why wont you just admit its about you. i cant help you unless you're honest with me. Have you been forced to do this or are you just a big ol' village bicycle?

  • Richelle Howes

    Idk why, but this pleases me so much! Haha!

  • This looks extremely complicated and very well done. I'd love to see the next zombie movie or video game use this.
