The intent of this video was to be a light-hearted and energetic narrative focusing on a main character who is driven by a single desire – to grow an afro. Underlying themes touch on the superficial obsession of one’s appearance and the means of obtaining your desires. At one point, the main character has a brief encounter with Barry White and his afro, where his desire is fulfilled. The weight of taking things from people.
