This short animation is still my all-time favorite. I don’t know what’s so good about it. I guess what I liked about it is Geri’s spirit, the way the animators have put spirit into the character of Geri. It is amazing how they did it. It must have required thousands and thousands of drawings to make Geri move and laugh like that. Hihihihihi.
I guess one other good thing about it is that Geri is alone but he is not lonesome. Can you see the difference? We can be alone but not feel alone. Heck, sometimes we can feel alone even if we are in a group. But Geri knows how to delight himself even if he is by himself. That’s a very difficult thing. Especially if you don’t have your cellphone, smart phone, iPhone, iPad or PSP with you.
I don’t want to play chess with myself but I want to learn how it is to enjoy those moments when I am by myself (without playing app games or lurking in facebook).
Here’s Geri for your laugh therapy today:
