We just had to share this amazing piece of work we found while browsing youtube. It’s a massive collaboration of 22 animators who pitched in to create this mix of unique and quirky styles.

It all started with JonTron who did a charity livestream for “Teach For America” and promised that if they reached their goal that he would sing the entire Katy Perry “Firework” song (For those who don’t know, Jonathan Aryan “Jon” Jafari is best known online as JonTron .Comedian/Internet Personality and Vide Game Critic). After the performance Mike Bedsole (An Animator for TV Shows) went to JonTron with the idea of creating this awesome masterpiece.

A list of the super talented animators who worked on this, who was your favorite?
