Cyclotrope Bike Wheel Animation - Story Of A Puncture

Just spotted this on Youtube.
Cyclotrope animation uses a Zoetrope idea, but using a bicycle wheel.

What kind of prick does it take to make a movie on that subject? seriously!

We need a 'sarcasm' font for Foo. Actually that was very cool, but I must ask one question before rendering final and irrevokable judgement.

Campy or Shimano? I much prefer Japanese sci fi to any sort of Italian pictures.

Someone who has had the experience and knows the pain. I think he's exhibited the highest form of humor, laughing with the pain. Very ironic, using a bicycle wheel to animate a story about a bicycle wheel. I give him an A.

I've seen videos of two other cycletropes. One similar to this, the other uses a large paper cut out similar to a wheel disc, so that you can have the animation while riding.

What was the app you are trying to subliminally sell there at the end of the video?
I totally missed it. Wait. I think I remember it now--nope, still blank.
