Complete credited cast:


George is a complete social outcast. One day he notices a lump on his head, which the doctor pronounces benign; the next day, it becomes a second head, much better looking; he hides his real head, and suddenly becomes much more popular. George becomes a politician, on a "save the snails" platform; he gets recruited as an empty suit for some evil advisors and is swept into office. Written by Jon Reeves <>

Wow....did I hallucinate or was this film like LSD?!
11 August 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most bizarre short animated films I have ever seen. At first, when it started I was very unimpressed as the animation appears to be really lousy. Pictures looked like they were roughly torn out of a magazine and these pieces of paper were moved using stop-motion. The music also had a real home made quality about it. I was baffled. However, the more I watched the more I enjoyed the film. Much of this enjoyment was because the whole thing was so strange and part of it is because the song has really odd lyrics that made me laugh.

The film is about an ugly nobody named George. No one likes or cares about him and his life is miserable. Then one day, an odd growth begins to appear on top of his head. Over time, it becomes a beautiful face--much like Michelangelo's statue of David. And, because he was an ugly nobody, George wore his clothes in a way that hid is ugly nobody face and everyone thought the growth was him! Then, as a result of getting this odd sort of makeover, his life changed dramatically. Everyone loved him and eventually he parlayed this into becoming President--all due to a weird lump! There's much more to the story than this, but as you could tell by the description it's bizarre but somehow likable and different....very, very different!
