…if you’re one of those really serious types that’s going to post a “Mr. Kelby, I am very disappointed in you…” comment.

It’s a hilarious Photoshop rap music video, but besides being so cleverly written and well produced, it actually has a few real Photoshop tutorials within it, which makes it even funnier.

WARNING: The video has some suggestive and otherwise offensive language and other PG-13 visual stuff, and if that type of stuff offends you, and you’re just waiting around for something to come along that lets you express your personal outrage, I’m begging you, “Please do not watch this video!” You’ve been warned, so if you watch it and you get upset, no complaining or whining allowed. Just laughing. :)

  1. Mr Kelby,
    Watched this from RC earlier. I love it! You guys need to do one. Maybe rappin Larry Becker. :)
    And to anyone offended:
    #1 Rule, no whining.

  2. Scott:

    Did you get this from Matt? ;)

    Saw this on Facebook earlier today. Aaron Johnson of “What the Duck” fame posted it on his wall. I hate rap, but this is really funny. “But it looks the same!” “Shut up, fool! No talkin’ while I’m ‘Shopin’, that’s the number one rule!” :D:D

    People would be rolling on the floor laughing if the Photoshop guys did this at PSW Orlando!


  3. This is so awesome!!! (On a geeky note, I’m so glad he avoided another Comic Sans disaster … #win!) ;)

  4. Amazing creativity never ceases to amaze me. I too am not a big fan of rap, but this rocked. Thank you for sharing.


  5. I love it! I wrote a few raps songs when I was a teen, and this one is great!

  6. It had to have been put out by the CNX marketing team

  7. It’s a good thing I don’t get offended very easily, that was outrageous, but hillarious.

  8. Hi Scott,

    Totally awesome video. But it is difficult to take notes with this kind of speed they bomb you with tips!!!

  9. Another in a long line of ‘why didn’t I think of that first . . . ‘

    Great post, Scott . . . =]


  10. That is classic!!!! That rainbow mane… Great!

  11. Awesome!
    P.S. (ing) has never been so fun!!

  12. Hilarious! And for those that get offended let me give you a quote:
    “Do what you want, say what you will, those that mind don’t matter, those that matter don’t mind.”

  13. Another non-rap fan…but, that was a HOOT!

    Loved it. What made it great was actually doing the PS in the video.

  14. NICE!!! Who woulda thought, rap + photoshop = learning… I’ve heard of singing the ABCs but rapping photoshop… It’s DA BOMB!!!!

  15. Mr. Kelby, I am very disappointed in you. I can’t believe you guys haven’t done this SOONER. I’m not a huge rap fan, but I’ve seen the light. More! More!

    This would liven up NAPP training videos :-)

  16. Brilliant. You gonna get his krewe in for a guest spot on D-Town?

  17. Hilarious! I especially liked the black tape squares on his hat.

  18. Really, really great!!! Thx, for that video!

    Greetings from Germany

  19. Scott, I loved it. Looks to me that with the exception of actually teaching some Photoshop, it would make a great presentation at Midnight Madness!!

  20. That was really well done. I too would love to hear DJ Kelby and MC Matt at PSW.

  21. If you can get Lisa Snider and Larry D. to do one of these I’ll sign up for another 4 years. (How do you get something to rhyme with “trot up or trot over”.)What a great way to teach and have fun at the same time. That in itself gets 4 stars. Thanks for sharing. Even if you don’t rap you still have the best thing going. Hmmm. Cory Barker rapping? I’ll buy a ticket.

  22. Brilliant, just brilliant!!!! and very funny.

  23. and I can’t do PS while listening to the radio… hmmm…

    that girl was a real looker btw… ;)

  24. Love it! Made my day. Thank you.

  25. I really wish I had not watched it..Rap is Crap. Period.

  26. Oh my god! That was awesome!

  27. I think we need “Don’t watch this video” Thursday’s. Hilarious.

  28. That was really well done! Funny – but I’m really impressed with the true rap attitude merged w/ Ps – and correct. Remember ABC’s “School House Rocks” – well, now it’s Kelby Medias’ “NAPP Raps” Word!

  29. Hey Scott,
    Busy time of year for me. Finals, no time to look up, students wanting to do a semester’s work in a week with my help of course. Not whining just stating facts. First real time I’ve had to look at your blog for a while

    That was too funny Scott. Anyone offended by this needs to, how can I say this?, Grow up! Nothing too offensive here at all.
    See ya,

  30. Brilliant concept and great fun! What a creative idea!

  31. This is way to funny, yes plesae do one. The Star Trek vide was awesome. I am already seeing Larry rapping. Get Moose in there too.

    Peace Out!

  32. Wow! That’s the first rap since White Lines that I have understood the words to!

  33. That was hilarious! I laughed out loud at the end. Thanks for sharing!

  34. Hilarious! The perfect thing to break up the monotony at the office today. Thanks Scott . . .
