Flix for Short: “Got Me a Beard” by The Beards

The Beards - Got Me a Beard (Film Clip - 2012)

The Beards are an Australian folk-rock band who only sing songs about beards. According to The Beards official website:

The Beards formed in 2005 — a dark time for the beards. It was a time when having a beard could mean unemployment, social isolation, and sometimes death. That’s when four defiant bearded men from South Australia decided enough was enough, and the beard revolution began.

The animated music video for “Got Me a Beard” hints at what the beard revolution may look like. Surreal, for one, but also glorious and unexpected. The video was written and directed by Tom Bettany, Michael Bidstrup, Joshua Fielder, Joel McMillan, and Chris Edser.
