Ten 80s Pop Videos Yooouuutuuubed

I’m so glad I found Yooouuutuuube. I’ve been wanting a thing that does what it does for ages.

What does it do? Well it creates an amazing animated grid out of the key frames from YouTube videos. It’s pretty 80s, but it’s cool – and you can get a really interesting flavour of the content just by looking at it. So I thought I’d capture a bunch of 80s pop videos to see what would happen.

I think they look lovely.

  1. I had a Dire Straits moment last week when a ‘muzak’ cover version of the original sounded better than the original. I thought that’s middle age there that is :)
