There’s Got To Be A Story Behind This Old School Fro

I love how the look on his face is very nonchalant too, like ‘Hey no biggie I’m just a guy wearing a tux and a GIGANTIC white afro, nothing at all unusual about this. Maybe I’ll go have a coffee in a second.’.

I don’t think anybody ever figured out what his fro was all about either. Maybe the world isn’t ready to know.
