Exceptional montage of b&w film clips set to Devo tune.
6 November 1998 | by (Athens, OH) – See all my reviews

Bruce Conner is the father of music videos. Long before MTV he was editing historical stock footage, usually filmed in the fifties, and setting them to music. Mongoloid is a prime example of this, in which various black and white film clips containing anything from educational films to old commercials are spliced together and set to the old Devo song, Mongoloid.
