The latest single to be plucked from Ed Sheeran’s ÷ album, Happier, sees him getting all fuzzy, as he has been replaced by a lovelorn, puppetified version of his good self.

It’s a sweet watch, as puppet Sheeran pines over his lost balloony love. Sigh.

Of course, it’s the same fuzz-o-rama Ed that appeared in the Sing video. He may very well have found the perfect way to avoid showing up to promo shoots.

Meanwhile, in other Ed Sheeran stand-in news, a sweet Pop! Vinyl of the redheaded troubadour is set for release on June 30. Pre-order it at JB Hi-Fi here.
