Even squirrels experience heartbreak when their lover is killed in a missile attack. This tragedy is but one brief chapter in Suicycle, a dark yet cute animation that looks at “what goes in, what goes out, and how everything we swallow gives the environment a case of indigestion”.
The short was created by Curiosity, a slick commercial marketing firm, specifically for the 2007 DesignPolitcs exhibition in Santiago, Chile. Suicycle plays as a never ending loop, and a fun counter keeps track of how many times you've seen the video repeat. I've watched it 27 times (and counting) while writing this post, and I'm still loving it.
