’80s videos: they didn’t even try, did they


We have the football game one TV and an ’80s videos channel on another. I’m seeing a lot of cringeworthy computer animations that may have been programmed on a pocket calculator. I just saw an Alan Parsons Project video starring a guy watching a football game and some woman is mad about this and sings angrily at him except the singer’s voice is male so it’s very confusing. There are a lot of videos with really bad dancing. Apparently there were no rehearsals before shooting started.

Well, computing power for video was pretty expensive and pretty crappy . . .

Back then, I thought they were amazing.

I mean, come on, isn't this great?

Not a Michael Jackson fan, but Thriller was a game changer for videos.
