As most of Gizmodo's staff is from the US, our knowledge of Eurovision is very poor. But we do know that it's a crime that Belarus was knocked out and didn't get a chance in the grand final.

As much of a shame as it that IVAN (or, as we've taken to calling him "Belarusian Legolas") didn't advance to the Eurovision finals, we've decided that this video has more than enough to make an excellent comic book.

Ironically, the story starts where the performance ends: a baby getting hit by lightning.

We presume the lightning gives him powers like duplicating himself:

Of course, the ability to communicate with animals comes with the possibility of forgetting who you are, hence the naked howling. The song title, "Help You Fly," either references our hero's attempts to lift up the world or a struggle where he thinks he's a momma bird teaching chicks to fly.

Here's the full performance. Full disclosure, we've been watching it on loop for hours. It's not the most addictive Eurovision performance we've ever seen, but it's our favourite of 2016. Watch it below.
