Classic 80s Music Video Of The Day

It's a shame they don't give acting awards for music videos, because if they did, the woman in this one would probably enjoy watching the ceremony on TV. (Her best scene starts around 2:00)

  1. She needs to put her freaking her in a pony tail already.

    Um, in her brilliant scene, is she wearing a diaper?

  2. I was wondering that, too. If so, I think it's full and in need of a change.

  3. Patton Oswalt does a really funny bit about certain 80's heavy metal music videos being set in a factory that manufactures sparks. That literally appears to be what the factory workers in this video are doing.

    I think the director must have watched that "Drive" video by The Cars, as he's going for the same kind of thing that Paulina Porizkova was doing ("look maniacally happy!" "now look like you're going to cry" "now laugh and cry at the same time").

  4. Almost lost amid the great acting are the excellent mullet specimens.

  6. Totally confused as to what she has to do with walking on water?

    Also, I LOVE the Night Tracks throw back. We didn't have cable forever (and thus, no MTV), so Night Tracks was my only outlet to videos.

  7. Joel - Indeed. She even looks like Paulina a bit.

    LV - I thought Night Tracks preceded MTV by a few years, but nope (I looked it up). I thought I remembered watching NT long before MTV.

  8. I was thinking the same thing about the diaper.

  9. I’m pretty sure the script only called for scowling and running her hands through her beoootiful hair.

    Was that an adult diaper she was wearing? Oh, wait, you all noticed that too...
    I thought I was stylin’ in the 80s but I must have missed that item!

  10. Change the lyrics up a bit and you could have a great Depends commercial here.

    "Well, if you can't hold your water,
    and you can no longer control your poo
    If you can't hold your water, you can depend on Depends to be true."

  12. Dire. Although it is quite true that those Euro super-model types have quite a kick.

    Another one added to Cary's dream festival line up:

    Styx
    Eddie Money
    Foghat - who mercifully I don't know, but I am assuming are shockers,
    Rupert Holmes,
    then closed by the Canadian Singing Toothpick doing a set of AC/DC covers.

    Come to think of it, I for one am nearly on the point of saying 'Celine Dion' because the punishment would be better than the alternatives being shown.

  13. Chickie poo is having quite the trantrum. Maybe disappearing when she turns sideways is too much for her little pea brain to handle. I simply cannot abide useless and temperamental women

    Anyone notice how old Eddie looks like Dave Coulier (of "Full House" fame) in this video? It's really quite distracting and off-putting.

  14. Crap, now I'll be doing a bunch of "na na na na na na na na na's" all day long....**smite**

    I too am pondering the diaper??

  15. Y'know, considering it was the 80s, Eddie looks pretty good... Hot almost.

  16. Someday, fashion designers will learn that no matter how hot your model is, puffy white short shorts always look like a diaper. Gwen Stefani was wearing some recently. It made me feel better about my own (lack of) fashion sense.

  17. good one, Daisy.

    Will someone explain to me how you can be a singer in a band and not have the slightest sense of rhythm?
