I want my MTV ID

Looking for a specific MTV station ID from the 80s or 90s, described within.

This was one of MTV's many station IDs (examples), probably from the late 80s or early 90s.

The ID is an optical illusion. At the beginning of the ID, you see a structure with a bunch of different materials placed seemingly at random. The camera moves and as it reaches its destination, your perspective shifts, and all the elements combine to form the MTV logo. I believe this basic premise is repeated 2 or 3 times.

Unlike the examples I linked above, this ID was not animated.

I'd love to find a video of the ID, but any stills from or credits for it would be appreciated as well. Thanks!

I think I remember the one you are talking about. And I think the tableau was on a lazy susan and rotated into a position where it formed the MTV logo.
