English singer-songwriter Keaton Henson's video for Small Hands, directed by Joseph Mann.

(Not safe for workplaces where you can't bawl your eyes out over woodland creature puppets.)

Well, that was fucking depressing. Also, awesome.

Absolutely beautiful and touching.

I have a huge weakness for puppets. I collect them and dream of one days actually producing videos with them. I'm not ready yet, but someday. I find puppetry to be a pretty powerful medium and a testament to our ability to suspend disbelief. That we can get ourselves to care for a bit of cloth and some foam...the song plays into it as well, but even muted I could feel the animals' pain.

Again, wonderful. Maybe they can make a happy video and happy song next time. You know, for kids.

If you can't/don't believe in something bigger as you watch this ~ it will break your heart. Going to share with friends that think I'm a little over the top in my empathy for mere "animals".

This is ... beautifully, beautifully done. Reminded me of dear Jim Henson & what his puppets could emote in us

Don't watch it, people!
