This video will either have the ability to make you very depressed throughout the day, or severely depressed. There seems to be no in-between with this one. Sure it’s a stunning piece of animation and the life-like representation of a human is impeccable — but it’s just going to make you realize that despite how you currently look, we’re all going to get old. Of course, that’s all dependent on if we don’t die in the process of getting old. Even if we don’t die while we’re getting old, we’ll eventually die when we’re old — and that’s been the problem with humanity since humanity even existed.
Anthony Cerniello wanted to show the progression of age in a human without a person actually noticing, so he constructed and illustrated this human (with the help of an extraordinary team) and made this video which is undeniably awesome and depressing at the same time. Props to TDM on the +100 news tip.
