Petaluma Whiskerino: ‘Beardo Optico’ Video

Why you shouldn’t mess with beard-enhancing drugs …

[on an iPhone?]

Every year gentlemen far and near seek new ways to gain an edge in the great Petaluma Whiskerino beard and moustache contest. Some even turn to beard “Fibering.” A practice frowned upon by judges for reasons of ethics and risk. Watch what happens when I dabble in this forbidden-follicled art.

Music: Dan Deacon “The Crystal Cat”

Huge thanks to Beau Bouverat at TINBIKE for filming and editing; to my wife Melissa for having a dream about this particular beard; and to Paul Francis for letting me get hairy in his bathroom.
