It`s saying that being who you aren`t results in destroying who you are.
It`s powerful if you fully understand the message.

This is so artistic! I liked it. It expresses interesting emotion: desperation for perfection, even if it means destroying one`s self in the process

It`s obviously about how people are really machines intended to mimic what they see, and how the television instills impossible standards.

This Andy Huang is very talented!!! The music sets the most perfect mood! I can extract so many meanings from this movie.

I personally think the creator is trying to say that robots are even subconciously (even without our knowledge) trying to mimic us even if it means destroying themselves

Wonderful!!! Wonderful!!!

I think it`s saying that robots can never reach as high a pedestal as humans have attained on this earth. Wait, I mean the beauty thing.

"So...The person who made this is trying to say trying to keep up with beauty only leads to death?? That`s what I got from it anyways....Creepy video"

I thought it was saying that society is setting standards high and almost unattainable. People who try to live up to that eventually break under pressure.

Maybe it`s saying don`t wear too much make-up and get a tan.

I`ll stick with my little bit of make-up and paleness, thank you.

what i got out of it was that its impossible to be something youre not. and that mimmicking something from tv cant be done and its like an addiciton and you want to be like the people on tv more and more that eventually you kill yourself trying.

its deep.
i liked it.
but kinda creepy.

"Just like teenage girls in our generation!"
Uh... just like teenage girls from every generation. I mean, sure, there wasn`t TV way back when, but you did see how people dressed and looked and such.
I do like this video, though. It`s executed very well. A little creepy, but not the worst I`ve seen.

I found this pretty powerful. It really gets the point across. The "beauty" of people in entertainment is for the most part an unobtainable goal. You can try but ultimately you will only damage yourself for trying to become someone else.

Not to mention the animation was pretty cool also!

not creepy at all. i didn`t "Get it" i guess.
but then i think that kind of stuff you have to "get" is merely pure interpretation.
therefore i get this as a waste of time. C:

I saw this months ago, and I loved it. Very simple, yet deep.
Since we`re saying what we think it means, here`s what I got from it:
She feels as though she must keep up with the trend (what she`s seeing on the t.v.), and tries so hard, she ultimately destroys herself.
Basically it is saying many girls will go to great lengths to make themselves "beautiful", to the point where it`s becoming harmful. So many young women invest in cosmetic surgery, spend hours tanning in cancer coffins, go on hazardous diets, or even become anorexic or bulimic. It`s just sad.

no girls, if you want men to love you then replace your body with a robotic one and lock yourself in a room with only a tv on a retractable arm. trust me, it works.

TY larajunky, I would have never seen it that way until you said it. They could have `added the pimples` like they did the make up for pity sakes if you wanna get that real about it.
I get this video I really do but come one, its not that beautiful.

LOL, I`m just glad to see some people understand the animation and the message.

The number of people that simply "don`t get it" without someone bringing up the explanation is as scary as always too though.

Goodness....

Can nobody spot the meaning?

I mean.... the unattainble beauty inflicted via the media, via many images... will in turn lead to break down.

It is an impossible dream, can`t be chased in actual reality and will still be sort even if it is damaging to the self....

It is so clear...

Eek.

[Notpluggedin worries for the people that don`t get it.]

I thought that it was going to be a real robot too. I got a slightly different message from it than kurtcobain05. I read it as the beauty we see on TV is unobtainable, and trying to emulate it will only end in pain and self loathing. We should accept ourselves for who we are. Great message. Strange, but very well done, delivery that probably wouldn`t interest most of the intended audience.

It`s saying that pretending to be something you are not will ultimately end in the destruction of who you truly are. At least thats what I got out of it. Good Vid, great message.
