More Videos Need To Be Like Akira And Video Games

This is the video for In The Middle Of The Nite, by DJ and producer RipTide. It's a catchy track, in that '80s flashback kinda way, but we're here for the clip.

A collaboration between illustrator Stefan Glerum and animation studio Crooked Line, it's taking inspiration from Akira, video games and even a touch of Wacky Racers.

Warning: there are some boobs in this. And boob cannons.


    If anyone likes this sort of thing or is looking for a newer version of wacky racers, look up Redline.


      Which 'Redline'?
      There's Redline (1999) a FPS/Driving game.
      Redline (2006) a racer on MacOS.
      The there's 'Street Legal: Redline Racing' which is an awesome concept, and after getting patched is still buggy but certainly playable...

      But none of those games seem to look anything like Wacky Racers...

    I thought the vid was cool right up until the 2:30 mark.
    (I also dug the 'superclean' animation aesthetic it was going for too)

    The 'Redline' (2009) which you, with all your citations, failed to know about.

    Boob cannons and *ahem* (rhymes with Lamia) tyres! Still, they don't have a patch on Tank Girl's rocket breasts
