Space Invaders in Düsseldorf

Telephone Helicopter Applause Gunshot is the name of a sweet electronic track by Lorenz Rhode, who says his music sounds like Rick James dating Chaka Khan, dancing to Daft Punk and Technotronic, making sweet love to a Stevie Wonder ballad, when suddenly a group of German robots and a Yellow Magic Orchestra come rushing into the hotel suite and… they all decide to go to France instead.

But today it’s not about his music, but about Anne Lucht’s fantastic Space Invader-inspired Telephone Helicopter Applause Gunshot video, which is nominated for the German AAA (Academy Approved Art) Web-Video Award (which will be selected tomorrow) and was decorated with 13 Visual Music Awards 2011…

The video-clip shows 8-Bit pixel monsters (a low-res alien-gang) dancing, rocking and bopping their heads to Lorenz Rhode’s krautrocky tune in the city of Düsseldorf, dope!
