Storyline

As the lights of a carnival midway dim, a huge tiger emerges from the dark. As it walks through the city, illuminated plants flourish in its path. It approaches a large apartment building: a napping man's TV goes off, he wakes and walks to the window, sees the tiger and is transformed into a monkey. Similar transformations occur as the tiger walks through the city: cars become snails, football fans become insects, hipsters outside a club become toucans. The tiger reaches a hilltop outside the city. Behind him in the city, plants glow and the air is full of flying creatures. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Mesmerizes my baby
14 December 2009 | by (Watertown, MA) – See all my reviews

My husband and I DVRed this from IFC, and my one-month old baby was in the room and he was absolutely MESMERIZED by it. Whenever he's cranky, if we put this on, it completely soothes him. It's aesthetically nice to look at, I thought it was interesting how it has such an effect on my baby. I can't say I personally understand it, but perhaps the baby has a better understanding of it than I do. :-) I guess the baby found it aesthetically fascinating!

An interesting short, worth checking out. And if you've got a fussy little baby on your hands, DVR Tyger to see if it works for you, too.

One of the better shorts that I've seen on IFC.
