Obscure Elite appearance

Post by JohnnyBoy »

I was watching some old music videos from the '80s, and I stumbled across something that I'd never noticed before....

Check out the sequence from 2:28 to 2:36 of this classic video: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=eGPhUr-T6UM

Dude, that song was one of the very first house music records to see the light of day, so back in 1987 it was a big deal. :)

Wow!
I'd never noticed that before either.
(Still have quite a fondness for some old house every now and again)
Nice find :-)

wow, you have amazing eyesight! i never noticed that, even after rewinding the video loads of times - i think i was looking for some wireframe ships or something. that reminds me, i remember another music video that came out around the same time that had some of the ships from Starglider in it, can't remember the song - i think it was something like the 'jack that house built' lol
ah, here it is: Jack n' Chill - The Jack That House Built

there a starglider walker at about 1:30, don't know why that video stuck in my head, hopefully it's not because of the dancing bricklayer :shock:
