A Designer Is Turning Childish Gambino’s ‘This Is America’ Into An 80s Animation

This has blown our minds.

It’s hard to remember a song this year that triggered a reaction quite like Childish Gambino’s politically charged This is America.

Aside from being a generally fantastic listen, it was the music video that really attracted the attention to the release, truly making use of the ‘shock factor’ as Gambino tapped into issues of race and gun violence.

Wahyu Ichwandari is an award winning designer / videographer who takes pop culture touchstones and turns them into animated using Apple computers from the 80s.

His latest inspiration was Gambino’s video, giving a stunning and nostalgic take on the clip through a mind-boggling use of pixels.
