US man has an emotional farewell to his beard of two years

This was the hilarious moment a man from Phoenix, Arizona documented the shaving of his beard that he was growing for two years.

The emotional farewell last Friday (April 5) was accompanied by sad music in the background, showing how devastated the man is and how attached he was to the facial hair.

Having to go back to the Air Force Reserves, the removal of his facial hair was mandatory.

The filmer jokingly said: "I’m ashamed of all the ugly underneath the beard."

The video was posted on Reddit and drew much attention, with one commenter asking: "Did you shave off your chin too[?]"
