We just caught wind of this via NYMag's Vulture, and we can't stop laughing. This stop-motion animation by Joe Hollier brings the beloved McSweeney's piece, "I'm Comic Sans, Asshole," by Mike Lacher, to life. Lacher personified the font in his piece, writing in its voice and turning it into a little snot with a lot to get off its chest:
"You think I’m a malformed, pathetic excuse for a font. Well think again, nerdhole, because I’m Comic Sans, and I’m the best thing to happen to typography since Johannes f***ing Gutenberg."
The animation livens the piece up, a.) by animating it, b.) with a spot-on, deadpan voice for the font, as voiced by Stephan Pacuk, and c.) by playing Beirut every time a pretentious font walks along.
Tired of all the haters, he vents, "Enough of this bulls**t. I'm gonna go get hammered with Papyrus."
Be warned: Comic Sans has a foul mouth.
