That guy who made the “This is America” music video in pixels with an old Mac is my new dad!

Amazing old school approach to creating a pixel art movie of Childish Gambino, “This is America.” May be a good use for all my old Macs after all.... @pinot is a genius. https://t.co/yo9eV8cZOr

But there was the occasional comment of, "Why do this?" Pinot perfectly responded with this Tweet.

"Why do you remake it with old computer?" "Why there's no gun in the animation?" "Why do you censor the bad word?" "Why only cover dance?" I'm translating a popular song so my children can enjoy it in different art form: a pixel art dance animation https://t.co/6Y7nVe99lQ
