Felix Colgrave (previously one, two, three, and four) brings us a surreal and colorful animated video with a delightful retro vibe. This cartoon starts out following a shipment of discarded toy parts to the bottom of the ocean. You assume it's some kind of an allegory for microplastic pollution. But they start to take on a life of their own, and self-assemble into weirder and weirder creatures. You then realize this is an experimental animation, and you may as well enjoy it for what it is. He tells us this is an "exploration of ocean plastic, avatars and adaptive bottom feeders. The musical!" It was inspired by toy parts belonging to his two-year-old son that he calls donks. Thrown together, they make some pretty interesting toys. (via reddit)
