Richard Condie has made a living from rather strange and eccentric (to put it mildly) shorts. This one, nominated for an Academy Award, is the strangest one I've seen to date. Sung as an aria, in Italian, I think, the subtitles are often hilarious and the short is excellent, if quite bizarre! Look for it, by all means. Highly recommended.
