JVC’s 1981 Effects Demo “Time Rider – Computer Dreaming” is Trippy/Painful/Awesome?

  • PLEASE FOLLOW THE RETROIST

This JVC effects demo is chockablock with just about every possible cheesy video effect you could think of in 1981. The end result is video that at almost 4 minutes has been described as difficult to watch by some and work of art by nearly no one. Which I do not understand if this is so hard to watch, why I have I watched it 4 times in a row already this morning? It cannot just be the music and sound, visually this thing is interesting with a capital I.

Based on comments I have seen online about it, I think people are judging this video a bit too harshly through the lens of history, but you be the judge.
