Phantom Limb

The story is still in my mind after the video ends.

In the aftermath of an accident a young couple learn to deal with phantom pains.

  1. Haunting, powerful cartoon.

    But the title made me think of the supervillain character on Venture Brothers, ‘Phantom Limb’ :)

    Interestingly, I recently heard of a technique that people who suffer from phantom limb symptoms can use a mirror to pretend they have the missing appendage (assuming they have the opposition limbs). Like, one’s missing right leg itches so use a mirror image of the right leg to “look” at the phantomous left to scratch it. It apparently works. Interesting how perception can affect reality…

    • Sorry that I never see the Venture Brothers so I don’t know that super villain. To be honest, I had never heard of this symptom before watching this video so it kind of amused me. Thank you for your comment. That technique is quite interesting.
