And yes, the music is great, too! Anybody knows the name of the artist? 😀 Reply pbhj says: November 23, 2008 at 2:05 am how do you get multiple people to edit an MS Paint canvas across the 'net, must have missed that feature … Reply Sandy Dunlop says: November 23, 2008 at 3:33 am Who mentioned anything about MS Paint? Reply jeegd says: November 23, 2008 at 3:55 am The music was made using garage band. Reply trees91 says: November 23, 2008 at 4:10 am Yeah, it's a really basic track from garage band.. I've used the fiddle pieces before. That being said, I love the snowflakes ;-D Reply Sky-net says: November 23, 2008 at 5:32 am The music would make great programming/writing music, only if it lasted longer. Anyone know of any music that sounds similar? Reply Xuan Jiang says: November 23, 2008 at 5:45 am Yes, that's the first thing I did when I heard the music-jumping to google to find out. And that's why I asked if there's a similar tune of the music. Because I swear I definitely heard it before. The programmer DID a FANTASTIC job, the music is full of holiday spirit. I just like to know where he got the inspiration. Reply Xuan Jiang says: November 23, 2008 at 5:48 am Thank a million. I'll reinstall Garage band now. 😀 Reply elisabeth314 says: November 23, 2008 at 7:26 am Just incredible…wow. Must've taken forever! Reply DaVince21 says: November 23, 2008 at 5:02 pm Well, the video itself clearly shows how it didn't really take forever. It's nice, but so are the most impressive works of pixel art at the Pixeljoint for example. Reply xslr says: November 24, 2008 at 6:50 am pure awesome 🙂 Reply neverhadachoice says: November 24, 2008 at 7:28 am no .. just marketing. it makes no false claims as to what it is.

Reply Valdrone says: November 26, 2008 at 12:19 am The song would be twice as awesome if it had a didgeridoo. Reply jbock2009 says: November 26, 2008 at 3:59 am that was…AWESOME!!! Reply Jiaqin Xu says: November 26, 2008 at 5:09 am cool~~~ Reply FancyFalcon says: November 26, 2008 at 11:40 pm That was an amazing video.

If my memory serves me correct, that intro part sounded like a Taiwanese's singer's song intro too. I'll try to hunt that down and post it here. Great vid tho, just the music sounded too familiar… Reply Brad Porcellato DBA Porcellato Engineering says: December 9, 2008 at 3:35 pm Greetings from Canada, My name is Brad Porcellato.

Man did we save time. It was better than having us together at the same place. What normally would have took 6 hours took 2.5 including talk time. If only there was webcam was available. I'm sure there was chat but didn't figure that out yet.

Reply snomeister says: December 11, 2008 at 5:52 pm Why do people post comments like, "Get a life"? What they did in the video is a lot more productive than what you are doing now. Reply ThatGreenhowGuy says: December 11, 2008 at 9:03 pm I Agree Reply asdf ghjk says: December 11, 2008 at 10:13 pm Hahaha, you would have to catch all of your friends when they are all extremely bored at the same time to pull off something like this. Reply Patrick Nelson says: December 12, 2008 at 4:22 am Clearly what Google apps were intended to be used for… art.

Reply thehungryduck says: December 16, 2008 at 3:22 am I love it. Amazing products, all of them. I must say though. The Garageband samples are stupid and obvious. I would expect much more from you Google! Multimillion dollar corp. can't afford some decent music? Reply knightofskylark says: December 16, 2008 at 7:43 pm sweet.

Reply pauldonovan08 says: April 19, 2010 at 5:07 am …"remember your colors…?" Mmmkay. Anyone else who pictured four people with NO purpose say "I." I'm not even talking about the project or the art. Whatever, it is what it is. I'm talking about the frame at 0:08. jason says "remember your colors" like it's a fucking preschool. It doesn't take much to make people feel like they're accomplishing something anymore, does it? Reply TheRealDeathSheep says: May 3, 2010 at 4:02 am @supertrinko why? this is just as possible on mac as it is on windows, fail much? Reply Amber O says: December 20, 2010 at 4:15 am @TheRealDeathSheep Wow, okay, because they didn't do that to inform the AUDIENCE of their colors in an indirect and artsy way, nope, not at all. Way to totally miss the point, dude.

Reply KJB Lynx says: February 24, 2011 at 4:49 am GoogleDocs has really become one of my favorite tools online; it just makes collaboration a lot easier when you need something simple that doesn't take effort to get to. Awesome video! Reply Isaac Enigz Han says: May 24, 2011 at 6:34 am The music was also used in one of Jay Chou's song, hope this helps..

At least for some, that's why it may sound familiar. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
