    The cheesey 80's video thread

    There were many. Funny, at the time they didn't seem so embarrasing, and some of the music was quite good, but the infancy of the video era certainly looks like a blemish us gen-xers will struggle to explain to our children forever.

    This thread has the potential for epic awesomeness.

    "Always be ready to make your defense to anyone who demands from you an accounting for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and reverence." 1 Peter 3:15-16 (NRSV)

    I mistakenly mentioned something in the BRAD thread...

    "Hillary has been cheated on more than a blind woman playing Scrabble. With gypsies." Dennis Miller

    Great song, even before Donnie Darko.



    1:50 on epitomizes random 80s videos.
    "We need education in the obvious more than investigation of the obscure."

    I prefer the Donnie Darko version.

    With some of the dreck running on MTV now (Beavis & Butthead excluded of course), and the rise of cheap "lyric videos" that are being released instead of actual videos that cost upwards of a million dollars, it won't be long before we have to explain to children what a music video is, period.

    I didn't know Stephen King played drums?




    This is a much cooler version of Africa

    Looks like there is a stuffy emo-Tobey McGuire singing for them.

    I thought it was Frodo.

    ...and Jerry Seinfeld does a great beatbox.

    I too thought Frodo, at first, but his profile later in the video made me change my mind. Spot on with the beatboxing Seinfeld though. Plus, his air-drumming really convinced my blind-eye that he was actually hitting drums!

    And if that wasn't bad enough, we have this gem...

    Caution: The video ahead will leave you scarred with images that you cannot scrub from your retinas with bleach and steel wool.
