Most of us think of MTV as the beginning of music videos, but there were a couple around long before MTV. Ernie Kovacs was one of those great innovators in music and television. He worked in early television so he had access to ways to the new technology of the time. And he developed camera tricks that are still being used to this day. That’s quite a mark he left since he died in 1962.
The most memorable video by Kovacs is Musical Office where an ordinary office of the 1950’s comes to life. And as one person put it if the pencil sharpener whistles Sentimental Journey then you can either hum along or retire.
And then I had to add this one because it has a banana doing a striptease which is too funny.
I hope you enjoy the videos, and let me know which one you like best.
