Kraftwerk animation from a vault

1979 when Kraftwerk‘s single “Autobahn” appeared Roger Mainwood has just finished the Royal College of Art when he was contacted to do a video for it. What then happened is the surreal, psychedelic 11.35 minutes long animation.

In the video an alien “hero” is trying to establish contact with humans, but instead is thrown back to clones of himself. Mainwood said “I was a young thing in those days! Anyway, it gave me an excuse to do a lot with the animation which I enjoyed and I think some people also have, although I can see it could be viewed as a rather frustrating film for anyone looking for a conventional storyline.”

Dear boys & girls, this shit still rocks, even after almost 40 years!:
