Amazing Shadow Puppet Video
We’ve all made shadow puppets before, but few of us ever manage to do it as well as Australian entertainer Raymond Crowe. This video shows his performance at the recent Helpmann Awards, the Australian equivalent of the Tonys.
His rendition of What a Wonderful World starts with Louis Armstrong himself singing, but soon the iconic jazz muso morphs into a host of barnyard animals.
But this clip isn’t just about singing animals. His rabbit hopping up a hill is very clever, and the tiny baby hand is incredibly moving. This clip manages to balance comedy and sentimentality, and the result is very special.
