This bizarre little piece of animation was originally intended to serve as the intro to a German documentary about video games. The idea was to take existing characters from the history of games and "reinterpret" them, to match the series' brief to present the everyday lives of MMO addicts.

I can kind of see that, in how weirdly everyone is acting, but still. That end. Bananas.
