A Brilliant Animation About a Man Who Confronts His Fears by Literally Learning to Live With Them

In the brilliant animation “Shock Therapy” by The Bat Collective, a very nervous man named Jim decided he had enough of being debilitated by his fears and decided to confront them head on by literally living with them.

Unfortunately for Jim, the date for which he had overcome yet another phobia, wasn’t so pleased to see every single one of Jim’s fears fully on display.

Jim is afraid of everything. In order to face his fears, Jim will bring everything he is afraid of into his house. It doesn’t quite work out as expected….
