Kinetic Typography

Do you remember that Men At Work "Land Down Under" video that literally acted out every verse of the song? Well, these videos take it one step further by literally spelling out the lyrics. As a type aficionado, one could imagine how excited I was when I found this link on computerlove. I've been really into kinetic typography since a professor of mine introduced me to the term five years ago. And as some know, I did my senior project on Saul Bass, the man who kinda started it all with his kick-ass film title sequences for the likes of Alfred Hitchcock and Otto Preminger. More kinetic type videos here. Really nice collection of film title sequences there.
