Video: A Criminal Mind

This is a music video for a song written, composed, and performed by Lawrence Gowan for his 1982 album, Strange Animal.  Using a mixture of live action and animated scenes, it won the 1985 Juno Award for Best Video.

It's got an interesting narrative in that it deals with a man who has 'a criminal mind' and is caught trying to steal a painting.  It's uncanny how similar he looks to the modern Marvel movies' Loki. Maybe it's just the shoulder pads.
