The Pain of Watching an Avatar Learn to Backflip

In a NY Times video, A Fun Film About a Topic that Scares Me A Lot, watch as an avatar learns how to do a backflip through machine learning. To me, it resembles the scene in Fight Club where the narrator is beating himself up. Totally painful and awkward to see an avatar try again and again to do a backflip.
