Warning: Do not watch the video if you are prone to epilepsy.

Nicknames: "Too Much Chyron", "SeizureVideo/SuperSeizure", "ChyronVideo/SuperChyron", "SuperAcidTrip","TrippyVideo", "What Am I Watching?", "Videoring's Brother", "LSD Trip", "Too Much Video Feedback"

Logo: On a green-blue gradient background, we see a green-blue chyron trail that says "SuperVideo" in a font that kind of looks like Avant-Garde Gothic; the trail is to the right. Then another "SuperVideo" chyron trail fades in. A scrolling "SuperVideo" chyron trail goes across the screen quickly, like the Windows Movie Maker title "Scroll, Banner" except with much, much, much more chyron. Then assorted rainbow chyron trails that say "SuperVideo" surround the screen, and it's nothing but chyron trails for some time, but, then, on a black background with a spotlight, a red-orange chyron trail that says "SuperVideo" appears, and the spotlight is turned off, leaving the words "SuperVideo" in red-orange and a shadowy clone behind it.

FX/SFX: The constant use of chyron/video feedback and the spotlight being turned off. 

Cheesy Factor: And we thought Greek logos were the only ones to use chyroning a lot. The creators of this logo were probably crazily addicted to Video Feedback, because they really put it to use, and this one goes WAY off the charts just for the simple fact that chyrons are repeating over and over again. It actually looks like the logo's creators had an acid trip before doing it. Also, the background at the first half looks like it was taken underwater, and why did they steal a track from A Fistful of Dollars?

Music/Sounds: A psychedelic, oriental-sounding ditty, at first completely synthesized, 3 long notes and then 2 short notes, repeating 5 times, but later with flutes, a gong, a lute and a triangle (taken from a track from the movie A Fistful of Dollars), still sounding oriental like the first half. That track repeats when the black background and the SuperVideo trail appear.

Availability: Rare. Probably on old German PAL tapes. Look on eBay.de, or go to Germany and check video stores for tapes with a SuperVideo print.

Scare Factor: Medium to nightmare. The strange music, overuse of chyron/video feedback, and cuts to the other parts will scare many people. This logo is also mostly psychedelic and will give seizures, but it's mostly cheesy and it would decrease the scare factor for some other people
