And now, something completely different. Commenting gladiator LightningLouie has alerted us to this downright amazing promotional video from the late Eighties that was filmed to sell potential investors on a Neuromancer movie. This is the godhead of weird ephemera.
In 1986, Cabana Boy Entertainment — "a Hollywood production team consisting of a plastic surgeon's wife and yep, two actual cabana boys," explains Louie — optioned the book for $100,000.
To lure in investors, Cabana Boys put together this incredible video promo featuring screenwriter Earl Mac Rauch (Buckaroo Banzai), creative consultant/late psychedelia guru Timothy Leary, and Gibson himself rapping about Neuromancer, the new cyberpunk craze that will give every odeon the vapors!
