Revenge of the 80’s in video – gag me with a spoon!

By  | 

The 80's were a good time for me, personally. Shall I tell you why? Because I could wear green eyeliner, green mascara, and purple (yep) eyeshadow and feel good about it. PLUS, the green went quite well with my neon green sweatshirt and matching socks, along with my pin-striped Jordache jeans with the zipper on the bottom. Oh! Such fashion! Those were the days.

Anywho, I thought it would be fun to travel back to the 1980's, Jennifer Aniston style. First, let's take a gander at her Sports Illustrated stuff. I don't really know what she's doing in this video; I guess she's trying to be funny? Kinda?

Next, let's take a look at ABBA doing a whole video in very uncomfortable looking sweaters. Ooh, I'm itchy just watching this video. And did she sing “when I called you last night from Costco”? That can't be right, can it?

And I'm sorry to have to do this to you, but I must. Yes, it's Rick Astley's “Never Gonna Give You Up”. JUST when you got it out of your head, right?

As we well know by now, bb's, Eddie Murphy DOES want to party all the time. He even sings about it.

Now, try to contain yourself….but I found the final scene of Karate Kid. CRANE, baby! CRANE!

Just an FYI, wearing your sunglasses at night is actually not a good idea. Because it's dark and you can't see anything. Thought you should know.

Last, but definitely not least (the 80's will not release their hold on you willingly, my child), we have some 1980's cartoons. In order to view these correctly, you must be eating a bowl of cold cereal, wearing your pajamas, sitting cross-legged in front of your computer screen.

Ready? I can tell if you're not ready. You can't fool me.

Okay then. First, He-Man and She-Ra:

Next, some cartoon songs. “We met some new friends…from OUT OF TOWN!”

This next video – the Krofft Supershow – will have you shaking your head and sputtering “What the HELL?” WHY do these kids willingly get up and follow these obviously disturbed people? That's the magic of the 80's, people. Don't try and figur it out – it's beyond your comprehension.

Actually, the Krofft shows were pretty much all seemingly drug-induced, weren't they? I mean, come on. Check out HR PufNSTuf:

Oh, gosh. Who am I kidding. I ate this shi* up like it was no tomorrow. I had dreams about getting on that damn boat and finding HR myself and running down the hill holding hands. It's all quite pitiful, really.
