Stop, You're Doing It Wrong: Animation Of Common Objects Not Acting The Way You'd Expect

January 24, 2017


This is an animation created by Mainframe of common objects not displaying the physical properties you've come to expect from them. Eggs bounce, lightbulbs squish like balloons, and balloons don't pop. I found it all incredibly frustrating. I'd just like one thing to go the way I'd expect, you know? Although I did like the pencils waving around like crazy air dancers at a used car lot. You know, you and I should go test drive cars on our lunch break just for fun. I love test driving cars. I also love taking tours of houses for sale. Basically anything that allows me to make-believe I'm living a much happier life for awhile.

Hit the jump for the video while I break things to make up for all the things that didn't break in this video.

    Neato. Hey, the same Mainframe people that did the old Reboot and Beast Wars Transformers TV shows? if so, nice to see they are still doing stuff.

    Video is so cool I don't even mind that it's Vimeo.

    (Although the shout-out to gender binary at the end seemed totally uncalled for)

    MF = MainFrame

    How did you manage to look at a whimsical video about inanimate objects and get butt-hurt about gender?

    That's a fucking skill right there. I don't even know what it would take to be that absolutely self-involved that literally everything should be twisted so that it either validates or invalidates your every thought and whim.

    That's like wearing short sleeves, walking outside and a slight odd breeze gives you a chill and screaming at the top of your lungs, falling to the ground in a hysterical rage out because the "Earth" is oppressing your need to express yourself.

    Sorry, you should know me better by now, Jeness. The "MF" was clearly in reference to "MainFrame", the studio that made this video. My trolly comment was just silly trollery, to see if I could wind anybody up, I didn't think I'd snag you in the web! :-D

    Oddly satisfying

    Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop dropping acid.
