These videos of Marcel the Shell With Shoes On have been out for a while. The first one was posted in 2010, and the second one was posted last month. I watched them then, so I’m not sure why I’ve watched them over and over this week. Maybe Marcel is just a good antidote to holiday stress. I shared Marcel with gorgeous designer/blogger Stacy Lomman, who shared it with her father. Now they’re both smiling a lot … “because it’s worth it.” In case you’ve never seen Marcel — or just need to see him again — here are both videos. You can buy Marcel’s book here.
UPDATED TO ADD: Stacy is so enthused about Marcel that she found a girlfriend for him. This is Shelly, who lives in Florida. As you can see, Shelly hangs out with hot chicks.
