finding making a version without the laugh track!!!
Does anybody remember the expression the Fab Five Freddy had on his face while Debbie Harry “raps” at him?
I think I saw the premiere of that video and I think I liked it, primarily for the music. (Which I still like.) I didn’t care about the color scheme. I may have thought the prancing about was kind of silly, but then, as you said, lots and lots of videos of the era had similar silliness. (I frequently liked the silliness, come to think of it.)
I loved that video, still do, so I wouldn’t call it “terrible.” A little goofy, yes, but it’s good-natured fun, and a decent execution of the tv-character-jumps-out-of-the-screen concept.
Gabriel Byrne tries his hand had being a musician! Backup singers voiced by twink!
This film changed my five-year-old life and I still unironically love this film.
So much WTF!!

When you compare it the musicals of the '30s and '40s, it’s not ridiculous; it’s very much in that vein. I guess it’s just that light-hearted musicals had gone out of fashion by the 1980’s.
Bad now, state of the art then.
“Good quality, all countries”
It does. Apart from the aspect ratio.
And I liked your post with the Men At Work video - and not because I thought it was a crap video. More a sort of only slightly sub-par humorous “imagine if Madness wrote this and then made a video for it” video.
Let’s just be thankful they didn’t build it off of rock’n’roll
It was the same director as this masterpiece.
With the track recorded and the video shot in 13hrs, I think we can cut them some slack.
Oh shit, I forgot the countersign!
OMG.That is T-E-R-R-I-B-L-E.
I fucking hated that Starship song the day it came out and my hatred has never diminished.
