Destroying Video Games and Controllers Can Look Mesmerizing

Gaming is great fun. But sometimes it can totally piss you off. And you just want to Hulk Smash—but you don't.

This animated gif is from Japanese anime Shinryaku! Ika Musume (aka Squid Girl), and it's utterly fantastic. You can see what it looks like when a Super Nintendo cartridge is crushed and when a controller is snapped in half.

This particular scene was in the Ika Musume original video animation that was released this past August. There's something oddly soothing about this gif.
