Will Powers - Adventures in Success (1983) 


First music video with computer animation



1) In this computer animated clip three masks move their mouths as if they sing the refrain. Via texture mapping two of the three masks show the facial features of Will Powers. If the masks turn so far that they have to unveil their backside, then reappear their fronts: They are only facades. The impression of a reversal of the direction is produced by an optical illusion. The two-dimensional animations look often like cartoon figures and allude to advertising claims.

2) Will Powers was the stage name used by celebrity photographer Lynn Goldsmith when she created a self-help comedy music album.

3) Singer Meat Loaf (Fight Club) starring in this video.
