ABBA SOS Mirror Effect

Can anybody help point me in the right direction to recreate this type of video effect (see picture attached). It's from ABBA's 'SOS' music video. It's clearly a mirror technique, but I can't figure out how to make it circular, or how to get it so that the mirror images aren't flipped.

The video effect in action is here (linked to the right time) -

Thank you in advance,

It's a Kaleidoscope effect, there are plugins for creating it(some free), but you can do it with shape layers also, like in this tutorial. If you google after effects and Kaleidoscope effect, you'll get a lot of other recipes for creating it.
