The most mesmerizing animations on Instagram


Warning: You may not be able to look away from these animations. I definitely can't. 

Sure, some of them are more than a little bit creepy with the distorted body parts and the weird textures. But at the same time, they're beautiful, fascinating, and oddly satisfying, right? I'd even go so far as to call a few of them relaxing... Anyone else? Just me?

No matter what you think of them, there's definitely an indescribable element that pulls you in and keeps you there for a while. Check out our list below for the 15 animations that you'll want to keep watching.

There's so much to look at here that it took me ages to notice how gross the fingers are.

This is horrifying, but for some reason, I've watched it like 15 times in a row. 

It is beyond satisfying to watch this one reform into a ball before distorting again.

And this animation is weirdly adorable, right? Or is it creepy? I can't tell.

This one relaxes me. I think it's partly because the little monster guy is so relaxed.

Back to being both horrified and amazed at the same time. What even are these?

Oh wow. No. Just no. This might be the scariest one so far. Send help please?

This one also relaxes me, because it reminds me of Swedish Fish in the weirdest way.

And this animation literally tells you to relax. Well, it's working for me.

Meanwhile, this is making me super thirsty.

Is anyone else dying to touch it? I've never wanted to touch an animation so badly.

I'm not sure why this one is so disturbing to me. After all, it's just a baby breakdancing.

I'm fascinated by this one. Is that water? Mountains? Either way, it's beautiful. 

This reminds me of when I begged my parents for a pet hedgehog in middle school. (They said no.)

So I hate this. But I also love it? Why are these animations making me feel so conflicted?
