“In 1992, a man receives love letters in Korean. Since Google Translate doesn’t exist yet, he’s left confused. What could this mean?”
This is the first line in the description of the music video for Tourist’s “Illuminate.” It is a quirky and silly premise, enough so to peak an eight-bit nostalgia. It harkens back to a time of GameBoys and arcade games and the over the top foreign intrigue of the Animes played on the Adult Swim of old.
