A woman is at home doing the laundry when her daughters boyfriend comes round. The woman remembers her younger days and dreams of dancing the night away, but is embarrassed when her frumpy knickers fall out in front of him. Later she answers the phone to him and has a conversation that leads the daughter to think something may be going on between them.
As a very short basic animation this is OK without ever really standing out from many animated shorts made every month from studios, students, workshops etc. The plot is a little silly and is setting up one joke. What does help the short is the animation style which is quite lively and full of nice touches. Spinning the characters from one position into another seamlessly is quite nice and I liked the way the words were put onto the screen and, in some cases, became part of the action itself. It appears a little cheap at first but I saw past this and got the intention after a while.
The joke isn't that funny but the short still manages to be quite amusing and I didn't feel like I'd wasted 4 minutes - although it didn't make that great an impression on me. It is maybe worth a watch once just to get a flavour of a different animation style but it's not worth hunting down to be honest. It is what it is - a mildly amusing animated short, no more no less.
