Who knew a music video could top the great kinetic typography for Ceelo’s “Fuck You”. Well, graphic artist Jarett Heather‘s fan vid for software engineer-turned indie artist Jonathon Coulton‘s song “Shop-Vac” has now taken up that mantle.

“52 geeks. 52 weeks. One challenge.”
That’s been artist Len Peralta’s mantra since March when he started his odyssey, now in its 14th week. His mission is to interview one influential geek every week for a year, then chronicle these conversations with a trading card featuring each geek.
“The trading card is really a great vehicle because, as you know, geeks are really into collecting things,” Peralta says. “The card is kind of like proof that I was able to connect with that person in some kind of meaningful way.”
