Lenny Kravitz goes MSX

In a brand new music video of Lenny Kravitz, a couple of MSX computers can be spotted. To top it off, some of the graphical effects in this music video were created on MSX. Yes, you have read it right the first time: MSX computers appear and have been used in the latest Lenny Kravitz music video.

In a project called Absolut Kravitz, the Swedish Vodka brand Absolut have published several remixes of Lenny Kravitz's song Breathe, remixed by such artists as Jazzanova, Little Louie Vega and Eric Roberson. A music video was made for each remix. The remix we are interested in, is the one remixed by Nikko Patrelakis. The music video to this remix contains the MSX graphics and cameos. If you wonder how this all could happen: the music video was created by the C-Men and Unyx. Regular MRC visitors will probably know the C-Men, who broadcasts the chiptune radio show Airwaves and uses the nickname poke-1,170 on the MRC.

In the movies section of Absolut Kravitz, you can download the music video that belongs to the remix in both MPEG and MOV format. Can you spot all the MSX action going on in the movie?

Is it true that some effects in Roxette's Joyride were made using MSX? I read this info in the Spanish "MSX-Club" magazine.
