This video may just be the cutest thing you see all day

Now for something a little unusual: Italian Director Lucas Zanotto’s Eyes video. A sweetly odd short film, it captures a range of human emotions through a series of ‘faces’ that have been constructed using ping pong balls, coloured craft paper, wind machines and general bits and pieces. Focusing on the eyes, the characters (if I can call them that?) each tell their own story. Hands down, my personal favourite has to be the thoroughly depressed crying peepers that seem to be self-soothing with a tub of ice cream. Bless. An endearing little clip, take a look for yourself.
