Sometimes the most twisted videos are the ones that kicked off the whole music video culture. So, on this Friday, we’re gonna be heading back into the past to check out Herbie Hancock‘s infamous “Rockit” video, which ultimately snagged five MTV Video Music Awards in 1984 (the year I was born). The video, which was directed by duo Godley & Creme, is full of robotic humanoid sculptures that are never quite complete and move in jarring, unsettling manners. It was revolutionary when it was released and it still ranks highly among the “WTF did I just watch?” music videos.
“Rockit” comes from the 1983 album Future Shock, which you can snag on iTunes.
