'The Warrior': How 'Avatar' Looks In 2-D

One of the most confounding names in music has always been Patty Smyth. Even now, a few of you are probably thinking I just misspelled the the name of the singer responsible for the albums Horses and Wave. Well, I didn't.

Smyth was the singer of a band called Scandal. Recently, I stumbled upon the video for Scandal's 1984 hit song "The Warrior" and realized that it's basically a lo-fi, low-budget precursor to the movie Avatar. See for yourself.
