This Awesome Music Video Thinks it's a Very Old Video Game

After I posted Sole's new video yesterday, I was inundated with emails from people saying "OH YOU SHOULD CHECK OUT THIS MUSIC VIDEO THAT'S LIKE A VIDEO GAME". Most of them were rubbish, but this one, from Polinski, was great.

The entire clip plays out like an old Spectrum game, down to the tape loading and the graphics having to pop in.

Fantastic! That's how you do retro! Enough clues to the past, but subtly enriched, so you always know it is a pastiche, not the real thing! The impossible number of colors, loads of expositional text with just one command and last, easter egg I became aware only on 4:34, though it was there all the time..

Brilliant!
