Logo description by SnowflakesOmega


WARNING: Do not watch the video if you are prone of epilepsy.

Nicknames: "Fiery Video Scope", "Gradient Color Sign","Fax Video Design's Lost Brother"

Logo: The first part of the 1982 UGC logoplays as usual. However a circle made of shining yellow stars appears zooming out, causing the logo to freeze before the white circle splits, making the star circle almost cover the whole white circle. Then other stars appear around all directions, and they all zoom in to the screen. We then cut into a moving fiery yellow gradient background(a la Fax Video Design), as a linear circle pattern with a star on it is seen. The linear circle then quickly moves down. The gradient background then flashes between yellow and black, as the same linear circle moves up, but this time with the words "VIDEO" and "SCOPE" placed on an outlined box below it. The whole logo then freezes, and "ANTICIPA" appears letter-by-letter on the top-right.

FX/SFX: The stars moving, the letters appearing.

Music/Sounds: An excerpt of “New York Theme” by Jan Hammer.

Availability: Extremely rare. Check Argentinian tapes released by them.

Editor's Note: The logo is known for its theft of both the UGC logo and "New York Theme", as well as really low-budget animation. It can also cause epilepsies due to the bright, shiny background.
