Celebrate the 14th with the Travails of One Small Stick

life_of_guy.jpg

In our humble quest to find a Valentine's Day campaign that didn't leave us feeling sick or pressured, we came across Don Hertzfeldt's 1995 classic Ah l'Amour.

The video illustrates one small stick figure's attempt to find romance. Thankfully, he has a lot of lives to spare. In the end, there's only one realistic way to win a little stick woman's heart - and no, it's not sex. Weird, right? Because, like, sex gets us every time.

This is not an Ikbis film. This is a Don Hertzfeldt film from 1995 titled "Ah, L'Amour", (not "Life as a Guy"). Hertzfeldt is a well known animator whose most recent film ("Everything will be OK") just won the Jury Prize at Sundance. He is not associated with Ikbis.
