What's surprising for me is that his face does not really change over those 6 years. Maybe it needs to be longer than 6 years, but I am pretty sure that between when I was 30 and now 8 years later, my face has 'puffed up'.

I used to be a lot leaner, 8 years ago.

What is bugging me is the haunting background music... it's from a movie, and I can't remember which one. And I have to agree with Alex, and would like to add that in six years, surely someone might have suggested a better haircut... ? :)

The music is by Carly Comando

Adeleida, someone suggesting a different haircut doesn't necessarily lead to a new haircut. I remember a time when I had long hair and I wouldn't cut it just because some people suggested doing so. Actually, some people's suggestions enforced my resistance ;-).

The most brilliant thing in this video is the music. Thanks vowe for making my day...

Now where can I get a rotating toupee like that?

Andy Rose, 2006-09-07

Ragnar - point taken ;) but I see even you caved in eventually... And I have to apologise, the track is not from a movie, if I just watched the whole thing I would have actually found the composer (doh!): http://www.myspace.com/carlycomando .

I think it's a fake video. His face expression is the same on all pictures, eyes are never tired and mouth never smiles.
It's probably just a "tribute" to a video of japanese girl who took her picture every day during 3 years:

Here is another kewl tribute: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DaFXSGvg_bo

I wonder how he and the girl could position their face in exactly the same place in front of the camera every time they took a shot? It's perfectly centered and the size never changes. Maybe it's some kind of auto-adjustmenst feature of the webcam? Or every picture was manually edited to be of the right size?

Andrei, this chap has been taking these photos since 2000, so I’d say he came first.

If you go to his website you can see each picture on its own—the video simply combines them with some music and effects. I see nothing to suggest that each individual picture is faked (not to mention that doing such a thing would be tedious!)
