What would happen if the ugly duckling never grew into a swan? A sad tale that would be.

Not bad

That was very, very strange. I really had no idea what was going on. I thought there would be a duck in it. It was just a metaphor. What did this have to do with "Salad Fingers"? I guess it was drawn in the same style.

You need to change your thumbnail. Then again, every celebrity's a rapist nowadays. I think this really is quite effective. The last scene is particularly haunting. You know how to create mood.


amazing, i thing that should happen to everyone who abuses their children, god knows it's what i wanna do to people i see doing it, and he was hitting the baby cause it was crying and he doesnt know how to take care of it, and the man kills him for the baby's own protection because he couldnt take careof him and his life would have been hell if he would have given him to an orpanage or just abandoned him. and for those that say these videos are disturbing and freaky, if you find the meaning below the serface they arent disturbing, yes they have a creepy atmosphere but they shouldnt be disturbing, it might just be cause im messed up and it doesnt bother me though lol

Pretty disturbing but well thought out

To those who don't get why he put the baby in the toilet is because he was worried for the baby's sake to not end up having a horrible life like he did.
He felt guilty for beating up the baby's father but the father deserved it in a way. Hitting the baby because he was ugly. Since the other man didn't know how the hell he would look after the baby and father it himself, he wanted to prevent any harm to him as he would grow up ugly like him. He was really upset at the end because he didn't want to harm the baby but he felt like he had to to protect him. Hope you all get this now.
