Animation: Luca Tóth’s funny new short champions life’s frustrating moments

Welcome to the surreal and wacky world of Luca Tóth, whose new short film for Fakt 13 had us giggling and squirming in our seats this morning. The site describes Same Old, Same Old as “Two minutes and 48 seconds of pure frustration,” and that’s exactly what it is, filled with enough slurping, slime, oozing pimples and wobbling dancers to make you feel more than a little queasy. The animation is pretty gross but nonetheless a wonder to watch; exhilarating like that moment on kids’ TV shows when someone gets slimed by lime green sludge. Brimming with awkward moments and jarring colours that will make your toes curl, and featuring a cow and a hench dominatrix on a date, after watching this animation you’ll never feel the same old way about frustrating moments again.
