Here’s the best Presidents’ Day greeting ever — Tim Pannell’s singing George and Abe, joined at the end by Ben and other American allstars, with a message to our current George — wake up and smarten up already. Here’s the link to the animated video. (It loads a little slowly so be patient. And the rousing chorus at the end is worth the wait). Pannell does the animation as well as his own music — composition, singing, instrumentation and all.

I did a studio visit with the recent RISD grad and Philadelphia transplant a few months back and will post on it soon. Photos at flickr.
