My second Senseless Short!

I got the idea for this animation after reading somewhere that goldfish had a 3 sec memory. It is probably untrue, but that would make life in a fish tank a little less boring:)

Anyway, I hope you like it!

lol treasure?

lol poor goldfish. Yeah the 3 sec memory thing is a myth goldfish can be trained to avoid certain conditions and navigate mazes and will retain that memory for at least a couple months perhaps even longer. Rather than using a hypothalamus to form memories like mammals and are instead proposed to use a section of their brain called the telencephalic pallia.

Good animation but could have used a bit more variety.

Tx for the educational minute:)

I knew it was probly a myth. It´s a bit sad though, they must be so friggin bored turning around endlessly in their tank:P

i thought it was great!

it was perfect. I was a little bit scared the old guy was going to loop 3 times, but then he died. I was thinking it would be a little funny if you just had the first one loop over and over again without ever stopping, kind of like the pokemon parody 'splash attack' or whatever it's called.

i felt pointless was good for this though, it's not like there's a whole lot of excitement being a goldfish. maybe you should have put a cock joke at the end, then people would shut up. also there's people that only have like a 30 second memory too... it crazy.

Beyond the senselessness

There was clearly a great deal of knowledge about goldfish here and how they have bad short term memory. The fact the goldfish had a cigarette in its mouth was kind of funny. Could have been shorter though because it kind of dragged into the mud. Great animation though.

Death to Goldy

Though this is meant to be a mindless short, the loops are boring and repetitive. Maybe you can make creative alternate things he would say as he comes back to find the treasure. Regardless, the animation looks great and the audio was nice.
