That’s a pretty awesome animation!
You really seem like a very creative person, After Effect, Photoshop and playing the piano. =D
Keep on creating!
Tremendous. Could you post a downloadable version of it?
Blew. My. Mind.
So, um, how many hours would you say went into this video?
My bet’s at around 200.
This is amazing, great job! Jesus, the music notes appearing as they were played, the stuff on the iPhone, words appearing driving down the street, everything – well done.
Outstanding! I’m speechless. Just brilliant.
Amazing – loved the sheet music animation!
Fantastic job! It’s good to see you’re still cranking out top quality image mangling. I’ve been a fan since ’02 or ’03.
Amazing We just featured it on Whitezine.com // We’re really amazed by your work. Please feel free to send us whatever you come up with next !!
Joseph – Over at whitezine
Found this on reddit. Amazing work.
I second this. I want a downloadable file for my iPod touch!
I too would love a downloadable of this. Instant inspiration for myself. Great work!
Just saw this , Have to say you hit the nail on the head.
I want a shop vac!
Great work Jarrett!
This is unbelievable. What a terrific job.
Wow, Jarrett, this is absolutely incredible. You have amazing talent and vision. I can’t wait to show this to anyone who will look. You made my day.
This was absolutely awesome, thanks for sharing it!
No need to say please. I enjoyed this animation you made! Seriously, made my day.
Goodlord that was awesome.
A rare music video that makes the song much, much better. So impressed.
Amazing. Best video I’ve seen all year.
You’ve got the “magic” my friend. Kudos. — A “Fan”
Awesome. I would buy this song in itunes… or however, if possible.
Just wonderful!!! Brilliant job.
Wow. Just wow.
WHOA! Simply fantastic. The attention to detail. Great textures with each of the faux-logos. The zoom and bloom effects are timed really well with the film and aren’t nauseating.
I’m really curious, what elements did you do in Toon Bloom Animate? If you want to write at all about how you used each tool, I’d be very interested to hear!
Congrats on a superb video. I must say that it really captures the spirit of the song quite well. If it were available on iTunes, I’d buy it right now.
Great stuff. It’ll be doing time on my blog starting tomorrow.
Beautifully done, very clever
thank you for sharing this! it’s wonderful for my design and branding students.
KUDOS. — RMM
You sir, are a very talented man!
Someday I hope I’m as good as you.
-Fueled by jealousy.
Absolutely fantastic, keep on going!
I can’t say for sure. Somewhere between 500-1000 hours.
Awesome work. I see the amount of hours into this project. Love the subtle stuff you threw in. Made it a total win.
Toss a link to JoCo’s site on your YT video and a link to iTunes to buy the song. You’re going viral with this puppy, so spread the love as a birthday present for JoCo. You’re going to open his work up to a TON of people who have never heard of him with this.
You’re blowing up, Jarrett. Congratulations.
Any chance you’d post a full size JPEG of the canvas you used on the chorus? I’m betting it’s a pretty interesting piece of art on its own.
Cries out for someone to take a crack at doing a real-time rendered version using HTML5. (A la The Wilderness Downtown)
How can we get a copy? I really want this on my iPod & iPad!
This was fantastic. I reall really enjoyed it. I would love to see more of these.
wow fantastic! just kinda clicking around your brothers facebook and checking out Tammy’s had no idea where you were or what you were into. But it sounds and looks great. Your son is beautful! Take good care nice to see even a little bit of you lol. Arlene & Jan
So, so great!
I’ve watched this video at least a half a dozen times today. It keeps getting better. And I keep catching subtle touches I missed the many OTHER times I’ve watched it. It’s complex. It’s layered. It’s extraordinarily well executed. This picked up nearly fifty thousand views today. It deserves millions of views. It may have that by next week.
I also want to see a typography version of “Trapped Inside Your Sofa.” Please, make it so.
You are a freaking genius! This speaks directly to my suburban pain, hah.
Every time I watch this I spot something new and clever (and I’ve watched it dozens of times today). This is my new favoritest thing in the world. Amazingly fantastic.
I just had to come find your website and tell you how much I enjoyed this video. It’s excellent work – thanks for sharing! (I came across it via a twitter link from someone who said it was the best use of text he’d seen – I agree.)
Very impressive! I came across a video of this on wimp.com and knew I had to tell you how amazing it is!
Fantastic. Love so many pieces of it. (And as a guitar player, love the solo notated). Best, Arthur
You could make a living at doing this! Absolutely astounding!
You are so cooooooooool!
Absolutely Awesome! Found it on dump.com, via wimp.com. I would love to be able to do this. Great work!
As a Coulton fan and a font freak, you hit two of my sweet spots.
That was effin’ brilliant. And I laughed out loud at the way you handled the Starbucks line.
Shop Vac video — friggin’ awesome!

I have easily watched this video once for every hour you put into it. Holy moly, it’s absolutely amazing! Thank you!
This was incredible. I’ve always loved this song and this video really did it justice. Can’t wait to see more of your work in the future!
Brilliant! So many layers of relevance! And absolutely incredibly executed.
Absolutely amazing! Way to go. The music notes were my favorite part. The drawing on the man’s face and the shop vac were a close second!
Absolute genius! By day’s end you’ll have 230+ new fans in the Mac Lab. (It’s typography week on the big screen and Shop Vac is our featured short today.)
You are my new hero.
I am showing this to my class today to illustrate principles of good design and motivated typographical choices. Love it. Thanks for making it.
Yes, yes I did enjoy your fantastic animation! It made me happy. Thanks so much!
Really, really fantastic and amazing!
jesus, best kinetic typography video i’ve ever seen
Not to sound repetitive or anything, but this is the best video I’ve ever seen. Unbelievably creative and imaginative. My God, I never get tired of watching. You are an inspiration. Thanks for what must have been an incredibly laborious effort. Handing the baton over to the rest of your many admirers….
Nice! Please also check out this cute Little Drummer Boy video:
Little Drummer Boy by Ten Days Till – [Christmas Music Video]
Here’s the youtube link
You and Mr. Coulton have inspired us! Incredible KTA and great music with commentary. My wife and I have looking for the right video medium to present her work in and BLAMMO, here it is. I hope that we can pull it off as smartly as you have. Viralosity to JayHay and JoCo!!!
More! More! More!
How did I not know about this before? AWEsome song, and an equally AWEsome animation for it. Extreme talent in both yourself & Mr Coulton.
You could be doing so many things such as movie credits, videos, advertising etc.
That’s a GENUINE talent. Well done
Very nice. I’d like to see a few more from you.
I must admit. I wept at the power and beauty. Thankfully, no one heard me. Because it’s loud with my computer speakers turned up.
Wow. Outstanding. Amazing. Stupendous. And a few other words I can’t think of right now.
You’re super talented.
i bow down to your animation skill.
as an animator myself, i am both inspired and crushed.
We’re not worthy…
Since you have the vector files, it’d be neat if you made a few wallpapers.
Great video, I would buy it on iTunes, twice.
Amazing, this is the most fantastic kinetic typography video I’ve seen so far.
Bravo to you! Kinetic type piece of the year for sure! +1 Internets.
Yeah! totally awesome!
No words to express the perfection and the cuteness of the work
Completely, utterly amazing. I’m inspired. Awesome, awesome work!
Fantastic work. how long did that take you?
You should have your own movie studio…only 500 to 1000 hours? I’m sure’ll be getting job offers from this.
You’ve been added to the Jonathan Coulton Wikipediapage! And rightly so
I’m still finding new things in each play. Must have seen this 20+ times, and just caught the animation of the grace notes in time to the guitar whammy bar at 2:13 and 2:23. Astounding level of detail in this puppy!! Congrats Jarrett on a job well done.
Amazing stuff. Keep it up!
The best kinetic typography I’ve ever seen.
I am not sure if anyone has mentioned it yet but the clip is fantastic. I even put it on the bigscreen when I am using my own shopvac to clean the …get this…shop.
Love your work mate…
All people deserve good life and loans or term loan will make it better. Just because people’s freedom relies on money state.
This is a very cool animation. I have tried to make a kinetic typography and failed miserably. I am so impressed, it takes a lot of time and talent. Great Job. Is there a way to make it with out after effects. I do have Adobe Premier Pro.
Brilliant. We want More
Absolutely astonishing. I’ve seen some other kinetic typography animations, but this one goes the extra mile in design, execution and attention to detail. I just saw this on Youtube and had to come here to thank and praise you “in person.”
I never comment online, but this is too fantastic to let go. Wow, just wow.
That was awesome! I want to bake you cupcakes.
It was Awesome!! I was enjoying this typography animation.
I think I have probably watched this video over 20 times since I first found it two days ago on YouTube! Every single time I watch it, I see something new… the graphics are so detailed, the animations so smooth, and everything just fits perfectly with the song; it’s definitely the best typography animation I’ve ever seen.
It’s incredible the amount of time you put into this project; you must be really passionate about art and music. I’m an artist and musician myself, but I’ve never tried kinetic typography, which I’ve come to define as the perfect synthesis of art, music and language. This is definitely something that I’m looking forward to do before I die (I’m 20 so I hope there’s still time).
Thank you so much for sharing this with the world! It made my weekend, and I’m sure it’s made tons of other people smile worldwide. Keep up your fantastic work and God bless your talent!
Looking forward to more of your excellent kinetic typography animations,
can we geta tutorial on this in the future please? this blew me away!
I’ve been a huge fan of your ShopVac typography video since you first posted it up to Reddit. I’d like to talk to you, if you’re interested, about making a video for my company. We are looking to make an animated overview of the company and because I’ve watched your video about 1,000 times, I thought of you first.
Do you do this type of work on a project basis?
Anyway, even if you aren’t interested/available, you should know that you’ve got another fan!
muhammadc [at] [gmail] .com
i am an animator and i found this on you tube a year ago and i think is the best typo motion i never seen…
i watch it more then 20 times!
i totally love it
(sorry about my english)
I remember watching this, and I’m glad to re-discover it. Almost like watching it for the first time again. Brilliant! People would pay good money for this kind of talent! Please update your blog – we want a ‘making of’ and more about such talent!!
Simply amazing. The song is captured perfectly in all its nuance.
WOW, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched this and I still catch something new each and every time. I posted it a year ago on my blog, and I still love watching it. I hope you do more of these, thanks for your amazing effort in this one!
you are my guro in kynetic typography.
Fantastic! More, more, more!!!
As a 60-year-old business person I see a lot of similar stuff in presentations– none I have seen is anywhere near as good. Fine work!
By far, this is the best resume I’ve seem. Kudos.
I would like to know what impact making this video has had on your career. Has it brought you business?
I think it is the finest example of kinetic typography in existence, and that you have raised the bar for anyone trying to do similar ventures. This is an art form I didn’t know existed. Thank you.
Totally awesome! I whole heartedly agree with so many of the other comments. This is the best example of kinetic typography I’ve seen yet and being a budding graphic designer myself I am in awe. Congrats!
Brilliant kynetic typography,I found your work on youtube,watched this video 5 times since then,keep creating seems you have a fan club.
This is outstanding. It doesn’t get much better than this. Best kinetic typography video I’ve seen to date. Keep up the great work dude!
Absolutely fantastic! Just sent you an email
Super awesome! Best kinetic typography video I’ve ever seen (and that’s actually saying something). I wish I had your skills. Also, I don’t think you could have picked a better song.
