Like most good spoofy songs, it’s hard to tell where the snideness ends and the affection begins. The Shop Vac Song was a minor hit for Jonathan Coulter about 10 years ago, and videos like this typography masterpiece put the Shop Vac song firmly in the firmament of internet things that matter for 15 minutes.
The life described in the video is supposed to be pointless, monotonous, and soulless. However, it’s exactly the kind of monotonous, pointless, soulless life that 99 percent of the human race, from the primordial ooze to Twitter, wanted for themselves and their children. And by the way, I own two shop vacs. Deal with it.
