Conan O'Brien Kinetic Typography

Everyone loves Conan O'Brien. I remember my friend and I watching The Late Show during his first season.

We were quite young but I distinctly remember thinking 'This is outstanding... and bizarre. This is like something from a cable-access channel. But on a network.' I felt like no one was watching yet, which gave Conan and Andy Richter license to go nuts.

While I don't have the time to tune in anymore, I still consider him one of my favorite TV personalities. He's really smart, funny and a class act. A perfect example is his goodbye speech when he left NBC and the Tonight Show.

Jacob Gilbreath used the dialogue as the basis for a kinetic typography project. Not only is is a treat to watch, it makes the words seem that more more important and universal.
