Flashback Friday: “Ralf and Florian”, The Kraftwerk Comedy Hour

Not suprisingly, the Kraftwerk sitcom comedy hour was never picked up. Watch the classic pilot episode, Ralf and Florian. The name of the show is derived from a 1973 album of the same name which has to this day never been released on CD. The show is very avante-garde late 70s, early 80’s, similar in style to the Andy Warhol Show on MTV, Liquid Sky and New Wave Theatre on Nightflight. The show is fascinating to watch in much the same way as watching a car crash on the freeway. My favorite bit begins at around the 2:30 mark where out of nowhere they start dancing to The Hustle.
