So elastic! I really envy people with plastic faces. Now imagine the faces makes during sex.

Yes! Finally I know why we are making music. This is very endearing. (Hilarious too)

That is fucking genius. Really, really, really fearless and expressive.

Even better (kind of): the same Qu├ębecois guy trying his face at this timeless classic.

And: "It's the kind of silly things we used to do with my father when we were kids. I made this video for my father 60th birthday, and I decided to put it online so I could show my love to him by looking like a perfect idiot to the world. :)"

It kind of looks like he's having a bowel movement.

In that case he definitely needs to eat more fiber.

In case anybody's curious, his name is Nicola Vachon, he's a photographer and here's his website. Nice pics.

I enjoyed this more than I thought I should. About halfway through I started making faces, too, sometimes agreeing with his and other times using very different expressions for the music.

This is how you do it.

Sophisticated gurning. I was laughing far too much to pull any faces back at the screen. Tee hee.

also, i initially didn't click this link because i thought "face" was an italian word pronounced like fah-chay and that the post was thus about some obscure italian thing of little interest to me.

Born with eyebrows like that, it would be a crime against nature NOT to do this.
