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.
I’ve Been In So Many Places I Shouldn’t Have Been — The World’s Largest Tree House
X-12! I don’t know if X-12 is a person, or a thing, or a state of mind, or some kind of cabbage dish, or whatever, but I just like saying, “X-12!” really loudly, and then yelling, “WHOO!” Try it, it’s fun.
The YouTube notes are not to be missed:
I broke a 2 by 12 16 inches long yellow pine wood with my right hook, and that’s the biggest piece of 2 by 12 that any human has ever broken with a fist without breaking the hand. That is the first time that I’ve ever broken that 2 by 12 16 inches long in that video. That is the biggest piece of wood that I’ve ever broken in my life with my fist, and that is X12 Superhuman strength right there. That 16 inch long 2 by 12 yellow pine wood can hold half the weight of a 3200lb Nissan Altima when that board is set along the grain. No martial art expert wouldn’t dare to attempt to break any 2 by 12s with their fist due to the high risk of breaking their hand. I did not break my hand, otherwise, I wouldn’t be able to hold that piece of wood in my hand if my hand were broken.
