: On a green-blue gradient background, we see a green-blue chyron trail that says "SuperVideo" in a font that kind of looks like Avant-Garde Gothic; the trail is to the right. Then another "SuperVideo" chyron trail fades in. A scrolling "SuperVideo" chyron trail goes across the screen quickly, like the Windows Movie Maker title "Scroll, Banner" except with much, much, much more chyron. Then assorted rainbow chyron trails that say "SuperVideo" surround the screen, and it's nothing but chyron trails for some time, but, then, on a black background with a spotlight, a red-orange chyron trail that says "SuperVideo" appears, and the spotlight is turned off, leaving the words "SuperVideo" in red-orange and a shadowy clone behind it.

FX/SFX: The constant use of chyron/video feedback and the spotlight being turned off...

Music/Sounds: A psychedelic, oriental-sounding ditty, at first completely synthesized, 3 long notes and then 2 short notes, repeating 5 times, but later with flutes, a gong, a lute and a triangle, still sounding oriental like the first half. That track repeats when the black background and the SuperVideo trail appear. The latter section is an edited version of the Ennio Morricone track "Titoli", from the film A Fistful of Dollars.

Availability: Rare. Probably on old German PAL tapes. Look on, or go to Germany and check video stores for tapes with a SuperVideo print.

Editor's Note: This logo is infamous among the community for having intense amounts of chryon and overall feeling like a big acid trip.
