Hilarious. How does this film site compare to others?
Ben Darlowon 01 Mar 07
The original (higher quality, Quicktime movie) can be found here.
Daniel Jalkuton 01 Mar 07
Awesome – but it isn’t Sam Jackson – it’s Ving Rhames.
Daniel Jalkuton 01 Mar 07
Oops – I misunderstood the context. They’re talking ABOUT Ving Rhames :)

someone should do a music video like this
Chris Heilmannon 01 Mar 07
Reminds a bit of Sign’O’the Times by prince, doesn’t it?
Blakeon 01 Mar 07
It’s repulsive how vulgar it is, but at the same time, the animations are inspiring.
DjDon 01 Mar 07
I didn’t catch This IS a tasty burger! in there though. sign
NetManiacon 01 Mar 07
This is masterpiece. But personally, I like this version much more.
Both links I have found on Presentation Zen blog.
Rob Goodlatteon 01 Mar 07
That was the most badass thing i’ve seen in a very long time.
Mradon 01 Mar 07
ifilm’s streaming sucks. That’s REALLY cool though.
Hojoon 01 Mar 07
I see nothing. =(
Josh Paradroidon 01 Mar 07
What that you say? A music video, you say? Hmm…
(they’re already using that print,-rotate-and-scale-typography theme all over adverts here in the UK)
Alex Aguilaron 01 Mar 07
gotta love the blood splatter effects
Scott Meadeon 01 Mar 07
motionographer.com is now my new favorite site for daily inspiration.
Warren Henningon 01 Mar 07
well that was clearly all kinds of awesome.
for those having trouble with the streaming (there were some comments above saying that), there’s also a youtube version of this video.
Edon 01 Mar 07
Cool. Reminds me of MKII’s Brazil Inspired: Machismo (look for it in http://media2.mk12.com/v6/mk12_v6_index.html).
Danon 01 Mar 07
Here’s a nice example of typography in a music video: Mylène Farmer & Moby – Slipping Away (Crier La Vie)
Nathan R. Garzaon 01 Mar 07
I agree with blake. Very vulgar (that’s why I never watched the movie), but The animation was really cool. Really gave meaning to the words, which is kind of weird. I wonder if/how this could be used in a couple of projects I’m working on…
Gary R Boodhooon 01 Mar 07
brilliant and deep. Vulgar though? To each his ownfor sure, but surely less vulgar than flip-flops, the evening news, US tax law, Hummers, etc… Who will protect the children?
Torleyon 02 Mar 07
Alas, if you don’t understand written/spoken English, then you won’t think it’s vulgar, and the characters may even appear to be a type of pseudo-abstract art. :)
This sorta reminds me of a certain Designer’s Republic video which you’ll likely like if you found the above enjoyable:
Here’s another great vid by Hexstatic, with trippy visuals synced to the lyrics:
Dan, nice link to the Moby vid! I haven’t seen that one before; he’s a great duo with Mylene Farmer, lots of emotion in that! The way the flat photos are flown-through reminds me of Royksopp’s Eple:
Gunther Hymenlickon 02 Mar 07
This is how proper typography is done, bitches. Well…. it could have used a couple of ”?” marks here and there….. Maybe after each question, or something. Just an idea. AAARRggggghhh!!!
Gunther Hymenlick's Brotheron 02 Mar 07
Very cool… any idea what software was used to create this? After Effects?
bzxon 02 Mar 07
this is fantastic!!! really awesome typography work!!!
(the other video from Presentation Zen is so lame.. doesn’t even compare)
what’s with the Ving Rhames?
bzxon 02 Mar 07

Davidon 08 Mar 07
Anyone have any idea what font he used, or what application he used to make it?
Just wondering how difficult it would be to do something along those lines.
rayon 08 Mar 07
what is the point of this? looks stupid and someone had too much spare time on their hands.
Nedon 08 Mar 07
“Anyone have any idea what font he used, or what application he used to make it?” Yeah I’d really like to know that as well.
jgpetrunaon 08 Mar 07
Ving Rhames? Are you kinding?
It’s not Ving Rhames or Sam Jackson. It’s Samuel L. Jackson to you, motherfucker.
Michael Otton 08 Mar 07
Nice work. I smell a new wave of more typography videos coming on.
Kudos for that.
Ana H.on 08 Mar 07
STeveon 08 Mar 07

Amyon 08 Mar 07
That was awesome!
connieon 08 Mar 07
Very, very, very cool.
Dianeon 08 Mar 07
Nice. Reminds me of an assignment from my first year Visual Studies class @ Ryerson University. Same deal – take a conversation and animate using text and graphic elements (i.e. lines and other shapes), but nothing recognizable like symbols or other “known” objects. No computers to be used for the assignment – all hand-drawn and shot frame by frame. And get this – no editing involved, so all shots and assets had to be planned in advance to have it turn out and sync properly. Challenging but a good exercise in thinking about motion, meaning and the medium.

For those looking for more info, the first place I saw this posted was here:
Gives some background info and credit to the student who created it.

Ed was right, this looks like MK12 from KC MO. The auction house series specifically.
