"Magic Beard": Stop motion madness

(CBS News) Be Warned, watching this video may be the best two minutes of your day, and will certainly leave you wondering how the heck did he do that? Through the magic of stop motion, photographer Ben Garvin has turned the mundane task of shaving once's facial hair into pure, well, magic! Check out the amazing video "Magic Beard" posted on Garvin's YouTube page, above.

And while as a dude, it kinda hurts to see such a magnificent and time-consuming display of facial hair go down the proverbial (and literal?) drain in a matter of minutes, the result sure is entertaining. Thank you Mr. Garvin for not letting a good beard go to waste. Be sure to stick around for the end of the video to catch a special appearance by the mysterious shaving cream monster.
