Devo’s Origin Story Explained via Adorable Cartoon

Most people love Devo, but it’s likely many from younger generations don’t know much about how the group came to be. Well, Mark Mothersbaugh is here to explain, with a cute animated short for Google Play. In it, he tells the story of how learning to see for the first time at age 7 — he was born with myopia — and watching the Beatles on Ed Sullivan inspired him to make music. It’s a fascinating origin story, made only better by an adorably animated young Mothersbaugh.
