Must See Music Video: Jonathan Coulton's "Shop Vac"

created at: 12/02/2010

The songs of Jonathan Coulton aren't novelty music, but they don't really ask to be taken seriously. Songs like "Re: Your Brains" and "Code Monkey" feature humorous lyrics , but the melodies are really quite complex (from a songwriting standpoint) and unbelievably catchy. In many ways, they serve the same function that children's music did to us as kids: funny bone-tickling ear candy.

This new take on one of Coulton's most awesome is perfect ManMade material - super cool kinetic typography, lots of clever brand references,'s a song about a Shop Vac.

You simply gotta watch this video:

Coulton's terrific and this is a fun song. The video reminds me a lot of the one for Royksopp's Remind Me.
