Bizarre Mashup of Actual World War I Footage with 1953 ‘War of the Worlds’ Tripods [VIDEO]
There’s a great deal of archival footage of historical events, and what better way to use it then to mash it up with an old classic movie? Animator and character designer Christian Johnson directed a video that takes archived World War I footage and combines it with footage of the 1953 sci-fi action movie War of the Worlds. Johnson uses footage of the tripods, 10-story tall Martian war machines seeking to destroy the world. The video is set to the rather intense tune of “88” by Working For a Nuclear Free City, making it one very dramatic and bizarre clip.
