1st (possibly only) Logo (1980s)
Logo: On a black background, we see the words "LASER" in an ugly purple connected futuristic font. Several shadows of the logo rise up from the bottom and stop at the middle. The logo and shadows turn orangish-yellow and the shadows stretch out to the top of the screen and disappear. The logo then turns to the left in a very choppy manner and zooms out with a trailing effect. We then fade to a shot of a satellite dish panning upward. The Laser logo, now in magenta, zooms forth and "dissolves". We then fade to a shot of the Earth in space with the logo zooming out. The screen cuts to black and the Laser logo turns orangish-yellow again and zooms forth again in a choppy manner. More shadows of the logo stretch to the bottom of the screen and disappear. "VIDEO", in an ugly dark blue font, appears below.
Technique: Live action, video feedback, and 2D animation.
Music/Sounds: A futuristic techno tune that sounds like Space's "Just Blue" (as heard in the Original Video logo).
Availability: Rare; seen on German PAL VHSs of the period.
