VOD: Ringo Starr Lands Spacecraft on Capitol Records

Capitol Tower in Hollywood
We all know what they say about the 1960s: if you remember them then you weren't there. The 1960s and early 70s were all about experimentation and progressivism. Normal was abnormal. Keeping that in mind, you might not be too surprised to see Ringo Starr in this commercial landing a spaceship on the Capitol Records building to promote his 1974 album 'Goodnight Vienna.'

Watch the video a few times just to see how odd it actually is. What is the deal with that horse? Why does John Lennon mention that the commercial is advertising the album when it already clearly is? What about the weird cuts and camera work? You'll see just how odd this VOD is.

Here's the LAist's post on it.
