An Emotional Animated Ball of Pubic Hair Is the Star of This Hilarious Music Video

A Fresh Take on Jealousy From Swedish Band Francobollo

A new music video from Swedish indie band Francobollo gives a totally fresh -- and hilarious -- take on the subject of jealousy, with the spurned lover being an animated ball of public hair.

The promo for "Wonderful," directed by Christopher Watson-Wood of production collective Mad Ruffian, starts with a woman preparing for a date by shaving off some unwanted hair. She might be beautiful, but she doesn't clean up after herself, and the hair collects in the bath as she runs off to meet her man. It re-emerges as a heartbroken fluffy ball, who's totally jealous of her lover, and becomes increasingly unhinged as he sits and waits for her to come home. It could end up being a Halloween horror-fest, but the ending will definitely make you smile.

Watson-Wood said in a statement: "We really wanted to do something silly and adolescent that didn't take itself too seriously -- as if plucked from the ripe brain of a thirteen-year-old boy. We also really liked the idea of trying to make something usually considered pretty gross -- like pubic hair -- into a cute and loveable character. With that in mind we set out creating our film…it's almost like 'Pixar hits puberty.' The character design was crucial, and it quickly became clear that the loveable hairball needed the personality of an emotive cartoon-like character, but rendered in a (very complicated) photorealistic way, in order to fit into the live action environment."
