Am I the only person that the title doesn't make any sense to? When I'm scared, I want hugs.

That ended oddly.

Not only is the film about the dangerous of creativity, the film can also be understood as an example of the dangers of creativity. I approve.

I want to burn that smug asshole pad of paper in a fire and laugh as it shrieks.

The way the puppet dude probably felt when the pad said "green is not a creative color" pretty much encapsulates my entire interaction with the arts between 2nd grade and graduating high school.

Creativity is great until it devours your soul. I find this short film extremely realistic.
