This video, called the Consumer by Max Mortl, tells the story of an unfortunate creature who can't stop eating. The stop-motion clay animation has an adorable beginning, during which the yellow four-armed critter chews his way through a plate of Jell-O, a baguette and a fast food combo.

Constantly being served with more sly dishes, the protagonist of the Consumer by Max Mortl finds himself being outwitted and out-eaten by his waiter and his meals. Perhaps this film is a comment on contemporary consumerism?
