Here’s a lovely animated film on YouTube. According to the film’s creator, Julia Pott, it is based on interviews about first crushes. I love her treatment! The storytelling is fascinating, the animation magical and the music keeps the video playful and nostalgic. It will also make you wonder about that first crush of yours. 😉
That last line was the sweetest, wasn’t it? Thanks to my sister for the lead on this video.
My first crush was a boy named Russ. I was in kindergarten. He sat across me during class and had the biggest crush on a girl from another class, a girl named Gina. It fascinated me how hooked he was on her, and how she ignored him. He’d literally chase her. I just watched from the sidelines. I tried to get his attention once but he just ignored me. It was a bit sad, but I moved on quickly. I wonder where he is now though!
Who was your first crush? 😉
