There are a lot stop-motion videos out there - but this one is pretty special.
Creative duo FriendsInFaux, Paul B. Cummings and Eriq Wities, used 1,556 Instagram photos to create this charming little tale of an unfortunate beach-goer who just wants some sun and some appropriate clothing.
The final frame count was actually even higher - over 3,000 - as many of the photos had to be shot again with the meddlesome finger interaction.
The pair also explain the process behing the film, called 'Instagramimation', in a behind-the-scenes video (see below).
Soon everyone may able to get a bit closer to recreating the film as rumours of an Instagram video service as soon as Friday have been circulating recently.
