YouTube user AKAcronny has an interesting animation style, which he applies to making fan videos for They Might Be Giants songs:
Can't Keep Johnny Down ( <-- best, watch this one) - Certain People I Could Name - Skullivan - Everything Right is Wrong Again

I like stumbling on something cool with zero net presence, and trying to make a post about it. The thing that keeps me from doing this more often is the difficulty in finding cool things to stumble on.

Nice! If I remember correctly, TMBG had a contest for the best fan video for Can't Keep Johnny Down. Here is the winner.

Heh, that winning video for Can't Keep Johnny Down is a fun and goofy parody of that reverse Coldplay video.

You know those things where you can't explain to somebody why they're funny, but you just can't stop laughing when you look at them?

This is one of those things.

One day, mainstream hollywood will take note of how internet animators establish and develop character, define and progress plot and theme, and entertain and enchant a jaded audience, within only a few sparse moments.

Amazed I still know all the lyrics to these songs - and most other TMBG songs. These animations are wonderful.

Same her sweltering. Back in college I had every TMBG album, and we're talking Severe Tire Damage era, not even the age of Flood. I've kept up with them a bit here and there, so sometimes I end up listening to a song with an unfamiliar title only to realize I not only know the tune, but quite like it.
