I read somewhere that love was invented as a cure for loneliness. I don't know if that's completely true but this brilliant short film—directed by Julio Pot—illustrates that thought perfectly.
Belgium-based ad agency Duval-Guillaume has a new clever campaign using human life-risking stupidity gone viral to raise awareness about organ donation. I can imagine the concept working perfectly with those daredevil videos we sometimes post in Sploid.
This short animation for Channel 4 is brilliant in many ways. It shows an overly developed world inhabited by millions of cute little creatures, with cute little jobs, and cute little bars. All is fine till the final twist—so unexpected that it blew my mind.
Put on your headphones and enjoy this fascinating view over the shoulder of a watchmaker, full of beautifully crispy closeups of the manufacturing and assembly of a Nomos Glashütte watch.

There's a gallery below, but you can catch all the…
Update: I was harsh in my first take of this laptop design. Upon further examination, it's the best thing we've ever seen. Seriously, every design firm should think about hiring Anna Lopez.
