I’m sure that most guys during one time or another in their lives have dreamed about being a “gentleman spy”. You know, the mystery & suspense…the thrill of the chase…and of course, the gadgets, girls, and vehicles.
I too have fancied myself as England’s famous MI-6 agent, gallivanting around the globe fighting against evil and tyranny in its many forms in her Majesty’s Secret Service for queen and country. I’m guess I’m a little regretful that after all this time, I haven’t utilized my Photoshop and After Effects skills more to create a more elaborate rouse (for entertainment’s sake of course). Perhaps at some point in the future… One more thing for the “To-Do” list.
Speaking of, many years ago I was listening to an old tune by Golden Earring titled “Radar Love”. An old classic. Of course, my mind happened to be wandering at the moment and I realized that during one of it’s choruses (I believe it’s called), I really got the sense that I was listening to a great spy intro. I carried that thought with me for many years. From time to time, I would mention it to friends but never really had an example to base it off of…..until now. I digitally spliced the song with an intro from the TV series, Archer. I have to say I was surprised how easily it fit into place. Once you see it, you will understand where I’m coming from. At least, I hope so.
