"Happiness" by Steve Cutts

Animated short film "Happiness" by Steve Cutts

"The story of a rodent's unrelenting quest for happiness and fulfillment."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9dZQelULDk


Worth more than one watch, as there are many little details. Lately, there have been several comics and short animations adressing "what's wrong with modern society", but I feel this one has an unusually clear view of the mechanisms beneath (abheit without presenting the obvious solution).
Especially that last scene.

Ha ha. That was a great little film. But my only takeaway is: I think I might drink too much.

Woah. Funny, *that* video required to be over 18 to view...

Interesting perspective on the rat race. That last scene hit very close to home!...
Lesson: You shouldn't outsource happiness. Or alternatively, "happiness" as it's marketed is an elaborate trap...

Many thanks, Astra! I love it. It's one of the best (and funniest) animation films I've ever watched. Very ERE-oriented, a great representation of these Christmas' days full of consumerism, and the rat race culture that everyday surrounds us.

Yeah I don't know what that's about... the mention of alcohol and substance abuse? The crushing reality of modern life? Or was it the scantily clad mouse-hookers with 6 boobies?

@Astra
Six boobies! :lol:

I was thinking perhaps the (treasonous?) anti-consumerism message. :D

I enjoyed that, thanks. I chuckled at the advertisement for "Rodente" perfume.
