america's most scenic drives get an 8-bit arcade pixel art upgrade + video remix

neomam teamed up with expedia to put together a list-acle — the most scenic drives in america — and as always, they put a trendy twist on the project, presenting each highway in a retro, 8-bit pixel art style that you’d see in an arcade. the nostalgia multiplies if you have loose quarters in your pocket, or if you’ve actually driven the pacific coast highway. if you haven’t, be careful watching these videos. the pixelated ghost of FOMO may just consume you into renting a car.

in the original story posted on expedia’s website, neomam’s videos juxtapose colorful descriptions of the five featured roads. in summary: for moss and mist drive the olympic peninsula loop; for waterfalls and woodlands see the historic colmbia highway; for wildflowers and perfect weather see california’s big sur on the pacific coast highway; for mountains on mountains on mountains drive colorado’s million dollar highway and for dry, panoramic planes, take arizona’s route 89A
