The New Yorker’s Impressive Animated Cover

The New Yorker’s latest magazine cover extends beyond its physical manifestation to an animated video viewable on the website—and an entertaining one at that. A collaboration between the magazine and the radio program “This American Life,” the lighthearted animation explores the real-life implications of a mother’s subconscious slip-up, in which she says, “Wow, you look so much better,” after seeing her daughter put on makeup for the first time. Head to The New Yorker see and hear the tricky—yet ultimately touching—situation unfold.
