great works + pedro marín: el día después en teletexto.

This is totally in the rad, pixellated vein of two of amazing Toronto artists Superbrothers. Claiming (and I’m believing them) to be the world’s first video ever shown in Teletext, Great Works created this viral vid for Pedro Marín’s “El Día Después” from his soon to be released “I Will Glam.” It’s a shining example of how simplicity can be made beautifully complex.

I’ve never heard of him, but apparently Marín was a big glam pop star in Spain in the 80s. To fuel his comeback (I guess he’s riding that whole pop revival gravy train) they created his first vid in Teletext – a technology that was introduced the same time as glam rock, which Marín’s claims as his biggest musical influence. It played on Spain’s Channel Four throughout May. Pretty rad.
