So sweet you'll need to brush your teeth: Orange County-born and University of Southern California-bred, singer-songwriter Kina Grannis has released her latest music video, which was made almost entirely in jellybean animation. Yep: Jellybeans!

Grannis says she wanted to make a video that "feels handmade," and director Greg Jardin obliged by telling Grannis about his idea of building on the concept of making art out of jellybeans by setting those images in motion. It took over a year to put together, and the results are pretty stunning. Check out the "Behind the Scenes" video for more insight into how this was made.
