Pioneering musician Jean-Jacques Perrey passed away earlier this week at the age of 87, leaving a legacy that helped lay the foundation for electronic pop music as we know it today. He was also a longtime scifi fan who looked to the genre for inspiration. As a tribute, his collaborator Dana Countryman shared this wonderfully goofy video they made with director Mal Meehan in 2008.
