In this striking and surrealistic animated short, a hard-nosed detective elicits a shocking — and bizarre — confession from a murder suspect. All the while the detective is being haunted by the ghost of his mother in the form of a psychedelic skull, before an unexpected entity pops up to sing a catchy theme song. It was the second time the Avatards team delivered a warped dark comedy to 48Hours, giving the filmmaking contest an injection of raw and jittery originality. Directors Wade Cowin and Kris Hermansson went on to create offbeat animated series Yap Trap. Warning: content may cause offence, or exhaustion.
