Paris-based motion design studio Parallel created a series of short animations which aim to do anything but impress, clips that highlight the frustrating day-to-day mishaps by turning them digital. The series, titled UNSATISFYING, aims to go against the trend of oddly satisfying videos that are currently pervading the internet, instead making audiences cringe with scenes that only deliver disappointment. The well-designed clips of missed opportunities and jammed soda cans were warmly accepted, and have led to several other animators creating their own takes of annoying moments through the studio’s UNSATISFYING Challenge. Take a look at eight short GIFs made from the original UNSATISFYING video below. (via The Creators Project)
