Coffee is serious business, so never discount the possibility of the coffee epiphany. The video is somehow funny, poignant, and even a little disturbing. Peer into the coffee and see Rust staring back at you. Freaky stuff, man.

It’s impressive that all of this can effectively come across in a clip that is actually less than thirty seconds long. Any longer and the idea might have overstayed its welcome. At this length it’s perfect. Next time you drink your morning cup of coffee, make sure to swirl it around and think of Rust.
