Monday Music Video: Luxury Elite – Strut (猫 シ Corp. Remix)

[youtube width=”720″ height=”480″][/youtube]
One of the cool things about vaporwave music videos is that they often recycle imagery from 1980s car commercials. A good example of this is the remixed version of Luxury Elite’s Strut, which inexplicably goes with a slowed down Mercury LN7 advertisement clip.
I wasn’t able to source the original ad from where the green, EXP-related FWD Mercury has been snatched, but suffice to say, there are ethereal matte painting landscapes, artificial fog and a trained lynx. Happy viewing!

    It’s great. The only thing ironic with this one is how a decade so full of optimistic technological progress would produce such uninteresting cars, in the US at least. Forever a leading star in my movie world, and sort of related:

    Two posts in the past few days that make me say ‘Murilee, is that you?’

    I had to Wiki it: “Vaporwave is a music genre and art style that emerged in the early 2010s from indie dance genres such as seapunk, witch house, and chillwave.”
    Gee, I have no idea what any of those other genres are, either. I have officially become my grandfather.

      It’s music that sounds like it’s from an ’80s action movie.

    Ah the sphere and bobcat Mercury ads! The original tune had music by Vangelis. Ford did this instead:

      Every time the EXP is discussed, I hear Casey Kasem saying, “Two, as in he and she, you and me.”
