Felix "Dont you want me"

[ Show youtube player ]

Surprising video came up on TV today and I thought... DAMN that's so much like Spaceballs State-of-the Art.

[ Show youtube player ]

Both released in 1992.

It HAS to have been the inspiration do you not think?

Would be very interesting to know which came first. I guess the Felix music video, but does anyone know? It's quite sure that one was inspired by the other.

Discogs give the Felix track a release date of 27th August 1992, I'd guess it was out in mainland Europe before it hit the UK.

When was SOtA released?

Not just the video, but the music as well
Well according to Wikipedia the single was released in 1992, so maybe it was the other way around

Not the cd mate. I have a VHS video with some music vids on it.
Will upload a pic today.
I have also a vid called DR. DEVIOUS & THE TEMPLE OF DOOM, with commodore credit in the end part.
I think the X-MIX series was made with some amigas too ?

Yah that demo was definitely inspired by this.
It was the typical videoclip of the 80s ;D

Oh shit, now I want to remix this song ;D
