Jacques Brel Typography

Author Comments

Jo, had to make this for school, a kinetic typography of a dutch song of Jacques Brel, you won't understand much, but enjoy it though :D

Drunk, mad and foolish
I bit into my beer
in the fat Jane of Monverland
I drank a glass with Klaas
I drank a glass with Pier
And things got quite rad
Klaas felt like he was Dante
Pier wanted to be Casanova
And I, the superarrogant,
Thought I could be myself

And at 12 o'clock as the civil gang
Went home from hotel the Golden pheasant
We scolded them poo
And sang with passion
Cap in hand

Citizens, men of the year zero
Fat civilian clique
Greasy filthy pigs
Citizens, "tame boar stuff" (lol)
All who is a citizen is an ooooold (cock)

I love Brel and this song, and it was originally a French song called "Les Bourgeois" (French and Dutch are spoken in Belgium, and Jacques is Belgian, so he recorded in Dutch sometimes). And I love this typography. I know the translation is in the description, and it's really helpful for me because I don't speak Dutch.

Keep up the good work,
Lyric <3

haha XD

welke richting volgde?

yo bitch ass!

awesome dude, supergoe. kzou er het geduld ni voor hemme :P

er, what?

The animations look promising but since I don't understand the text I cannot tell if a certain quality of humor is succesfully conveyed. So, here goes a 1/3-rating. Next thing you submit to NG should be in english.

I added the translation in the author's comment section.
It had to be this song (in Dutch), but I thought it would be fun to upload it onto newgrounds, because this is my first animation :D
