Scopitone machine

We were really excited to stumble upon a Scopitone machine in a coffeeshop/thrift store in Montreal! Scopitones were like film jukeboxes. They were invented in France in the early 60s and inspired the music videos of our more modern times. Brian has long been a fan of Scopitone "music films", after learning about this site where you can watch some of them!

 

here's a really hilarious one, (which involves a lot of feather-tails & arse-shakin) which is a cover of a George Jones song I love, "The Race Is On":
