Babies Are Little Shits, So Are Evil Clowns

I don't think I'll ever want to have children. For one: I don't think I'd raise one well, for two they're very expensive, and for three I love living in metropolises.

For four: they apparently wreak untold havoc at fancy dinner parties when given the proper diaper that lets them move the way they want to.

But credit to Huggies for this AWESOME commercial. I love the old-timey music, and I adore this film trick where the camera pans and dips through a frozen scene. It also teaches me that, were I ever to have a son or daughter to call my own, I would not fit them in movable huggies but, rather, some sort of plush harness that prevents them from moving around as they please and ruining my fancy dinner party.

It reminds me of a far more sinister video of a similar sort that came out around the time of the Batman film reboot, and so appeared as a me-too. It's psychotic and spooky and, again, oh so cool.

Then again, perhaps the clown hospital heist is less horrifying than the babies destroying the party. Depending on your answer, you might be able to tell if you're meant to be a parent or not.
