Procrastination by Johnny Kelly

I was busy all morning doing a bunch of stuff, at least I thought I was. After stumbling upon this masterpiece by Johnny Kelly I realised I hadn’t done anything and had just spent my entire morning procrastinating.

If you are already wasting your day you have nothing to lose watching this little short, but I’d recommend watching it even if you have no time to spare.

I snagged a few examples of Kelly’s superb design work for you all as well!
