Here's what Nick Vegas from Greyscalegorilla had to say about it:
"A previous winner of the Five Second Project, Ross Phillips is no slouch when it comes to fun, simple, and well crafted animations. This entry from Ross was practically a shoe in to win with it’s iconic imagery, globally relatable theme and a brilliant unexpected finish. All of life (awkward teenage years included) crammed into five seconds of keyframed goodness. Bravo!"
