I love the potential of online content; you never know what you'll find. You might find the typical "influencer" stuff that's somehow popular, or you could discover the psychedelic hilarity that is Double King.
The premise is deceptively simple: a king wants to keep ascending to new levels of kingliness, ie: stealing crowns to put on his crown. He travels to different realms to kill every ruler he comes across, and keep adding to the crown totem pole on his head. It's great! This simplicity is what makes the visuals and creatures digestible. We can understand a universal story told in a very strange land.
What we've really got to appreciate here is the beautifully weird animation by Felix Colgrave. The art style is this fluid mix of fairy tale, old Disney cartoon, and LSD-fueled hallucination. It's all animated so smoothly, and with boat-loads of charm and near-perfect comedic timing.
No words are spoken in the short either, so Double King has to rely on the secret sauce of cinema: visual storytelling. This short uses body language, gestures, and its expressive art style to tell everything you need to know, regardless of what language you speak. Because of how creatures are presented, it only takes a few seconds of looking at them to figure out their story.
And best of all, this great weirdness can be found on YouTube for free! Sure, there is a lot of shallow and disposable content to be found there, but you can also find gems like this hilarious drug trip. Obviously I recommend you smoke something and give Double King a watch. This short is definitely a Good.
