This computer animated commercial for Hawaiian Punch came out in 1987. This is the uncommon full 90 second version. The music in the commercial is by Mark Mothersbaugh (DEVO). Later in his career he admitted to embedding the subliminal message, “Sugar is bad for you.”
This is a wonderful 1980s time capsule and for some reason reminds me of “Stomp”.
It is all too rare to see Mark Mothersbaugh as Booji Boy and it was a rare treat when Mark sang “U Got Me Bugged” as Booji Boy without DEVO at a 10-12-07 show at Safari Sams. It is a wonderfully orchestrated mess. Merry Christmas to me…
Listen to Mark Mothersbaugh and Gerald Casale talk about the past and future of music. A lot of bands could learn from what DEVO has to teach and I just love to think of DEVO as the house band for the end of civilization as we know it.
