First crush

Julia Pott animates childhood love.
12 06 29 crush

In Peanuts, Charlie Brown famously says, “Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter like unrequited love.” Everyone’s had that first crush they couldn’t or wouldn’t talk to. This video by animator Julia Pott takes interviews with now grown-up lovers and puts it to cartoon animals. Some are inspiring (the girl who marries her crush), others are depressing (the crush who likes the best friend) and others leave you questioning (the man who never knows what became of his first love). They all tug at heartstrings because, let’s face it, we’ve all been there before.
