Shop Vac // Jonathan Coulton
I’ve seen this reblogged a couple of times today and I may see it a hundred more and that will still not be enough. This is, simply, the best music video I’ve seen in at least twenty years—a masterpiece.
We always complain that people don’t watch videos on tumblr, because it’s true. All I can say is that if you make that choice you are denying yourself 3:26 of delight and pleasure. I actually rose from my chair during the guitar solo, not because of it (though it’s great) but because of the videomaker’s choice.
I don’t have enough superlatives. I’m torn because now I want to go and buy all of his music, ever, but that would mean I’d have to stop watching this video over and over and I’m not ready to do that yet.
