It’s impossible to look away from Kristen Lepore’s peculiar yet therapeutic film, Hi Stranger.

The animated short, which has been watched 2.4 million times, features a tiny claymation man speaking softly to you about life, how difficult it can be to create things, and a what a gorgeous sunset can do for the soul.
