What if we made stop motion videos in Excel?

Stop-motion Excel spreadsheet

Thank you Mathilde Saunder (@Mathildesaunder) who tweeted about his PSFK blog post dedicated to one of the latest creations from Mystery Guitar Man, a.k.a. Joe Penna, who posts a new video every Thursday for his 2 million YouTube subscribers, generating more than 326 million aggregate views to date.

Instead of using an Excel spreadsheet to calculate mathematical formulas and figures, Mystery Guitar Man, with the help of the online audience he called to his aid, has constructed over 730 images as colored Excel sheet cells, creating a work that could be called digital pointillism! After all, spending time on Excel can be creative, even if musically, the result is questionable! 😉
