Walk the Dinosaur

Click now for JiffNotes

Because of today's Cake Wrecks post, I watched this video (which, being cable "deprived" most of my life, I'd never seen before). Here, I'll wait while you enjoy the cheesiosity:

Walk the Dinosaur video (I am way too lazy to figure out how to embed this) link

So, yeah.

There's a lot of things I could say about that video (the hair! the costumes! the JACKET ON THE DRUMMER!!!), but my main thought was,

MAN, I miss the days when scantily-clad hot dancers actually smiled and looked like they were enjoying themselves.

If this video had been made today, those dancers would have been poutily vamping to the camera and taking themselves wayyyy too seriously. I know, I know...not the dancers' faults. The director. Hey directors, they're dressed as CAVEWOMEN.

Get over yourselves.

I'm sorry you're now singing BOOM BOOM ACKA LACKA LACKA BOOM....

I can honestly say that I don't think I had ever seen that video! I'm very familiar with the song (and was before Ice Age 3, thankyouverymuch), but we didn't have cable in the town where I lived at the time.

Yeah, thanks for getting that song stuck in my head ...

Funny though!

I can remember when this was on MTV the first time - scary what time does to some things.
