altCES1.jpgHere we are in the Wayback Machine, at the press conference launch of the Commodore Amiga, in 1985. Andy Warhol paints Debbie Harry in real time. There are a couple of great moments in this:

Andy: “…such a great thing”
[Laughter]
Interviewer: “What more can you say?…”
Andy: “Oh, I could say a lot of things.”

Interviewer: “What other computers have you worked on before?”
Andy: “Oh, I haven’t worked on anything. I’ve been waiting for this one.”
[Laughter]

    when I heard ‘paint’ i was thinking it wasnt just gonna be using the fill bucket, thought maybe andy would be doing something a bit more creative. overall, disappointing video but an interesting look at the past imo.
