I Don’t Know WTF This Is, But I Love and Fear It

Seriously, you have to see ‘Hi, Stranger.’

I’m at a loss for words. This doesn’t happen often, fortunately, but as of this moment I am stymied trying to come up with a way to explain Hi, Stranger that makes any kind of sense. It’s Claymation and three minutes long. It was written and directed by Kirsten Lepore. It concerns a humanoid figure with a nice butt speaking directly to camera, to you, as though it (he?) was an old friend, or maybe even a lover. I saw it on Digg.

That’s honestly all I think I should say, except to offer my strongest, most sincere recommendation. There’s a delightful absurdity to Hi, Stranger, at times an uncomfortable absurdity even, but every single second is oddly captivating, like your hands are when you’re on really, really good psychedelics.

Sometimes you just need a little weirdness in your life. Make Hi, Stranger that weirdness today.
