Theodore Avraam : I remember watching this on YTV, waiting for "Reboot" or "Are you afraid of the dark?" to start.

cassidy ladden : God this takes me back. All these tapes had such a huge and wonderful impact on my childhood that I still remember vividly to this day. My father was an Art teacher in Nyack, and he was always bringing home the latest computer art or claymation festivals for me because he knew I'd love them. He's been gone a little less than 3 years but I still feel very close to him whenever I watch these. Love and miss you forever, dad. ⌚️️🌙❤️

Josh Hauta : I remember this video vividly from my childhood! Thanks for uploading.

Symonds : This is prime vaporwave material right here

Nick Hentschel : Possibly my favorite segment of the film, this may have been a pastiche, but it somehow creates more of a concrete "setting" than any of the others. I always wanted to learn more about these people who lived in this magical pyramid, surrounded by a desert.

YoRocky : This takes me back to my childhood. :) Gotta love the 90's.

KuroCartoonist : 20 years later and i still don't understand what im watching

Kristin Drover : I remember seeing these on YTV in the wee small hours of the morning. Always thought they were thought-provoking and beautiful! Thx for sharing!

SmokingSpoon : My favorite. It's the one that marked me most in my childhood. Am I the only one being remembered of FF/Nobuo Uematsu with the soundtrack?

thebikevoid : "We are of the butterfly." I think the main message here is really important, actually.

K Korjus : I remember watching this as a kid and being mesmerized by it. My favorite part was at 0:56 with all those weird, cool, faceless beautiful creatures.

Andre00x : My favourite and the best

Jesse Johnson : This shit scared me as a kid, the other Short Circutz were good though.

CaRcypher : I still hum this tune lol

Zaphernater : oh god i remember this from my childhood on YTV in between shows. awesome!

TrustyCranberry : 0:58 weirded me out. That blue lady needs her neck checked!

jeve nagi : Wow! I haven't seen this one in at least almost 20 years! I remember particularly loving this one because of its music an weirdness. I dont even feel these shorts are dated at all... they sort of have a timeless abstract quality to them. It was these shorts, Reboot, and some SNES games and Mario 64 that first introduced the world of 3D animation to me, and I guess it was the same for the world in general. What an exciting time to be a kid, and right on the edge of the millennium to boot. I wonder if the current or future generation can experience something that way.

Diego Neira : This is soooo deep! I love it!

Patrick Bateman : I've been looking for these for YEARS! i never knew what to search for, I was so young I couldn't think of anyway to describe what they were. Easily my fav short when they used to play this on Y-TV at night. Never thought i'd ever get to see these again. man the nostalgia.

T-Bone : ah yes Canadian childhood :)

Damien : What is this? I can't believe I missed this as a kid. I used to love YTV and this would have blown my mind.

Seth Caudle : When everyone is high at a party

swiftwolfcoyote : I love this animation so intense

Daniel Fanshaw : It all makes sense

Words of Cheresie : My interpretation is that humanity (and perhaps the dog too) is striving to become more than they appear to be and to perhaps take on divine attributes. This can be done in a number of ways, but the video highlights art and religious ceremony as ways to achieve divinity. Divinity is represented by the butterfly which remains out of reach.

Josh K : Ya it reminds us all of growing up in the 90s but seriously wtf are we watching here?

Melissa Dudgeon : I have had this song stuck in my head since I was 4.

Sipahi100 : The nostalgia is beyond overload right now

tomaskejr : Jan Hammer - Our Czech Genial Musician!

Javonni Otero : Did you know they used the dog bark sound from WW:MMG and WW:MPG

Amathene : Vaporwave ripped this off basically

Daniel Link : Annihilation (Alex Garland, 2018)

Meaghan Edwards : Totally remember this one on YTV. I loved that dog.

sshampoo : Game of thrones, linkin park music video mashup much

Man from Nantucket : My childhood was little more than a bad acid trip.

Adam G : Oooowwwwwwwwwwww!

johnsonapp : This one was always my favourite. The song is so good! :-)

Pinakure Mageek : Am I the only one who reminds an alternate version with another soundtrack?

Takumi : Holy crap! I have been looking for this for forever! Thank you!

Nick L : ohh mannnnn!!! where has this been hiding !!!!!!!   

Mortemain Crowe : Wow, never thought I would hear this again. :)

swiftwolfcoyote : Love the transformation scene

sausageslaps : hard to believe this is over 20 years old

Jan Ramsay : Thank u for doing this I loved the music on this

R1PT9C0N : i think i saw some of this on the lawnmower man

Karla T : Watching this in 2018

keon habibi : What is the name of this song? It is very nice

CovenantOfComedy : chasing realities and other thoughts

Jax184 : I think it's "We are of the butterfly." She said something different in the original version of this video, and in neither case did it fit with her lip movement.

Maxwell Landbeck : Does anybody have any idea what the woman says?
