Artist Terry Border gives us a glimpse into the life of a lovable piece of bread in his adorably endearing video ‘A Slice of Life.’ Follow the melancholy adventures of Mr. P.B. O’Bread, a piece of bread smeared with peanut butter desperately searching for his other half. Life has been tough for carbs ever since the Atkins diet hit.  Fortunately, Border softens the image of this gluten-happy food item with playful visuals and a sweet story. He makes us feel for the O’Bread as if he were a well-loved fictional character from a favorite childhood storybook.

This charming video follows the classic bread-meets-bread storyline and ends with the successful completion of a whole sandwich (the filling equivalent to consummating a marriage). Terry Border specializes in bringing drama to the lives of everyday household items, from eggs to pasta and everything in between. His mind-blowing visuals force us to take a second look at what we often perceive as dull or uninteresting. Border’s ‘Slice of Life’ video is deliciously affecting and lip-smackingly engaging.
