Ben explains the short film: "The Body of Love" is a song about the gentle ache of opening our heart to something bigger. To another human being, to vulnerability, to God, or even to another puppet .I was excited to collaborate on this video with my wife, Ione Skye, who directed, and the LA-based improv puppet troupe "The Sound and the Furry" who starred in and helped conceive the story. Thank you to Ione, Emily, Collin as well as to the real stars of the video - Penelope and Argyle - who help remind us that we all must eventually remember that we are one with the body of love."
