1980's Dot Matrix Printer Plays Rocky 3 Hit Eye Of The Tiger

The 1982 hit film Rocky 3 is memorable for a number of reason's.

Sylvester Stallone's third film in the hugely successful franchise featured the most "1980's" moment in pop culture history when Rocky Balboa faced off against Hulk Hogan in a bizarre 'Wrestle-Fight'

We reckon that the second most "1980's" moment in film history was when Boy George guest starred on The A-Team!

And speaking of the A-Team, Rocky 3 also introduced the world to Mr T, who starred as Balboa's nemesis - Clubber Lang.

As well as being a box office smash, the film also featured a HUGE hit song by Survivor with 'Eye Of The Tiger' which stayed at the top of the Billboard charts for six weeks.

Now in tribute, someone (with a LOT of time on their hands!) has programmed an old dot matrix printer (yes, the ones that loudly whirred and clicked as they typed out text) to recreate the iconic song.

It's a pretty amazing effort, take a listen! 

And if that's not floating your boat and you're worried the buzzing and whirring may get stuck in your head, here's the original to clean your ears out!
