A New York animator and illustrator by the name of Pinot recreated Childish Gambino‘s “This is America” video using an ancient Macintosh SE computer. After painstakingly drawing every frame (375 frames to be exact) on a Macintosh SE running MacPaint, he used MacroMind to piece them together.
The finished product mirrors the beginning of the music video. Check out his creation below:
