A wildly bizarre short-animated film, "Going to the Store," entranced hundreds of thousands of people on YouTube this weekend. Nobody is quite sure what the appeal is here -- some laugh, some say WTF, but nobody can stop watching. Perhaps it taps into some base desire to go flailing through the streets, but more likely it's the tagline -- "normal guy normal walk" -- that gets you, as does the tellingly subtle ending.
The film is animated by David Lewandowski, the lead animator on "Tron: Legacy." He created this short for the final episode of Channel101's "Everything" series, a non-profit short film festival. The "normal guy" in the film is walking to music by Jean Jacques Perrey's "Little Ships."
