Must See Music Video: Jonathan Coulton’s “Shop Vac”
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, and…it’s a song about a Shop Vac.
