The Super Rope Solution

Dutch animator Auke de Vries created this awesome tongue-in-cheek short called 'The Super Rope Solution.' Telling the story of a lazy man who orders a Rube Goldberg-type machine from a late night infomercial, he finds himself regretting his decision (as is probably the case with most late-night infomercial customers).

It's a fun, lighthearted way to poke fun at all of those useless devices that end up being more hassle than convenience.  The desaturated, crosshatch art-style reminds me of children's books from the 70's and 80's; Something similar to Shel Silverstein.
