Scoff as we may, we’ve all been there before. One of your gadgets starts acting up and, even though you know it’s wrong, banging on it with your fists just feels so right. Why, even TV and movie people do it — a lot, actually. Vimeo user Duncan Robson was kind enough to round up the best belligerent-tech-smashing-clips that TV and movies have to offer, and the result is absolutely delightful.
The weird part though is that despite the subject matter (i.e. mounting frustration to the point of physically attacking inanimate objects), the video itself is surprisingly calming. Maybe it’s vicarious catharsis, maybe it’s pure, unadulterated schadenfreude. Either way, sit back and relax as their pain becomes your pleasure — and just be glad it’s not you. [Laughing Squid]
