A sarcastic physicist at a nuclear test site finds himself in a sticky situation after his ineptitude leaves the facility in grave danger.

A sarcastic physicist at a nuclear testing facility finds himself in a tricky situation after his ineptitude leaves the building in serious danger.

Animator and director Connor Kerrigan’s animated short is a witty, irreverent comedy. The synopsis may share a resemblance to the premise of many “Simpsons” episodes, and like the iconic show, it shares an intelligent wit immersed in irony and the foibles of everyday life.

But its visuals are uniquely hypnotic, both bright and strangely luminous, lending the storytelling a sense of pop-inflected surrealism — and a fresh take on the traditional workplace comedy.
