Herbie Goes Bananas | Hancock in '84

Herbie Hancock at the MTV Music Video Awards winning for Best Concept Video, Most Experimental Video, Best Special Effects, Best Editing and Best Art Direction for "Rockit", beating Michael Jackson's "Thriller" in 1984. Here is the original "Rockit" video (Hancock himself appears and plays keyboard only as an image on a television, which is smashed on the pavement in the closing shot) as well as the extended live performance with Herbie and the animatronic mannequin legs.
