Usually, when a video game presents a seemingly impossible challenge, it’s the player who gets cranky. In Anthony Falleroni’s short Jumpy, it’s the hot-pink rabbit onscreen who becomes outraged—and more determined than ever to succeed.

The animation here is very simple, and the concept is, too—but you’ll seldom see a film capture the white-hot feeling of furious frustration so effectively. The soundtrack is also somehow the perfect blend of bleep-blorp sound effects and synth-tastic emotional roller coaster.
