Yeah I remember looking it up. Money for Nothin'... Great song.

Maybe get a blister on your little finger,
Maybe get a blister on your thumb.

There's no information I could find on those BOSCH boxes though. If anyone has
some knowledge of them, throw it up on the list for us. Talk about obscure.

I emailed at the guy who made it, but never received a response..... what
the hell was Money for Nothing made on. There was an atari ST ad that had
an image from it.... but at last, Wikipedia has answered this question:

"Ian Pearson and Gavin Blair created the animation, using a Bosch FGS-4000
CGI system. The animators went on to found computer animation studio
Mainframe Entertainment, and referenced the "Money for Nothing" video in
an episode of their ReBoot series. The video also included stage footage
of Dire Straits performing, with partially rotoscoped-animation in bright
neon colors, as seen on the record sleeve."
