Storyline

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 <jreeves@imdb.com>

The best things about this short are the music and the script

This short, produced by the NFBC, uses a style of stop-motion that, at least to my eye, is distracting and not entirely effective. But the music is spendid and the basic concept and script are engaging enough to overcome some very definite visual drawbacks. Makes some pithy and cogent remarks on humanity's character and values (or lack thereof), but could have been better, for me at least, had the animation been less irksome. Well worth seeing.
