Why Watch? If you’ve ever wondered what a Tom & Jerry cartoon would look like with Michel Gondry behind the wheel (and haven’t we all?), the director is more than happy to oblige. In this scattershot short, a mouse opens up a hair salon but runs afoul of his feline neighbor.

Experimentally going beyond Itchy and Scratchy, Gondry has created something fun and wholly irreverent here — from an opening shot of a man in a mouse suit bedding down for the night to the orgy of ink floating impossibly on paper to create the animation. The former is reminiscent of a certain Monty Python sketch; the latter is reminiscent of 3rd grade. Overall, it’s a manic delight.

What will it cost? Only 3 minutes.
