Exclusive Early Look: New Superpowerless Video

Hey, do you like rock music made with a Game Boy? How about 8bit music videos in which a magical space tortoise saves the world? If you’ve heard of Superpowerless (you can read our interview here) then this sort of thing will likely sound familiar to you. Superpowerless make Pixel Punk music on a variety of video game and nerd culture based topics. They have had their videos played on MTV and even made it onto Vevo without being signed with a record label. Superpowerless are on the road to stardom, and we’ve got their new music video early.

The video is due to be part of a new Channel 4 program titled Mashed, which will see popular YouTube content creators offering their takes on stories from the year. Superpowerless’ new track and video is centred on the death of Lonesome George, the last known Pinta Island Tortoise, considered by many to be the rarest animal on earth. The video mixes in lots of video game references, including references to Pokemon and DragonBall Z and teaches us all some facts about Lonesome George’s death that you won’t find anywhere else.

Mashed will debut on Channel 4 on Friday 28th December at 11:40 PM and will be hosted by Rich Fulcher, known for his role on cult BBC 3 show The Mighty Boosh. What do you think of the video? Will you be watching Mashed? Will you be watching any more of Superpowerless’ videos? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
