Mike Pelletier’s short film Still Life looks nothing like the classical paintings of bowls of fruit and flowers you’ll find in a stuffy art gallery. Using hyper-realistic computer animation, Pelletier’s film instead features fruits, vegetables, and breads that look like they’re secretly balloons as they deflate and then fill back up with air.

You’ll feel a little confused at the end of the whole thing, but mostly because you’ll be craving an over-inflated croissant, and wondering what an empty orange actually tastes like.
