Kinetic Typography

Conan O'Brien Kinetic Typography from Jacob Gilbreath on Vimeo.

I saw this tonite and loved it. Many of you not from the USA and not familiar with who Conan O'Brian is, or what he has done on USA television over the past 20+ yrs or so, may not know or understand the full story of what he's been thru. But in a way that doesn't matter because the message he had to share in this speech is more important. And beyond that the typography is wonderful. Those of you who may enjoy graphic design in various forms have that to wonder over as well. This is good stuff and a very creative way of reproducing a moment. I can think of other speeches where this would be effective as well. Maybe you can too.

I couldn't help thinking of this old Calvin & Hobbs cartoon strip tonite after I'd watched the video below.

Your mileage might vary... but feel free to measure it in "ly" (light years). Proof that none of us are big shots in the real scheme of things.
