‘The Trials and Tribulations of Being a Skeleton’: A Charming Halloween Animation [VIDEO]

I sometimes wonder what it would be like to be a skeleton. I’m sure I’m not alone. But are you like me in thinking only of the upsides? Who blames skeletons for being social awkward? That’s an upside, right? And wouldn’t it be nice to commune with the dead?

But it’s been brought to my attention—by the video featured here—that life as a skeleton also has its downsides. For instance, gravity is a constant drag. And when was the last time a skeleton could enjoy a cold one?

To celebrate Halloween, Gentleman Scholar, a group of digital and print artists, created a short and charming animation, “The Trials and Tribulations of Being a Skeleton,” about these ups and downs. Enjoy!
