Great videos you might not remember

I am eyeballing you

Some of you will know this about me: i’m old! Oh yes, and i’m too sexy for my shirt, plus a few other things, open up your fruitcakes! YEAH BABY YEAH!
Are you catching these references yet? If not, please pay attention. Geez, it’s like being at kindergarten with you youngsters all over the place!

First up, we have a video that, admitedly, simply doesn’t qualify as ‘great’, some might argue it’s not even ‘good’! So what on earth is it doing here, i hear you scream. Well, i thoroughly like the tongue-in-cheek attitude of our “singer” here, and they all seem to be having a bunch of fun, whilst making fun of people who thing they are just too hot…for anything. 🙂 Urban legend has it that the two bulky brothers in the band owned a gym where many models could be seen, and they decided to take a poke at them in this song and video.
Makes me a tad nostalgic of the era, which is the early 90’s, in case you didn’t know. Which you probably didn’t. Hence why i said it. 😉
In addition to the jaunty attitude of ‘Fred’, let’s call him that, we have the raunchy extras, which are probably largely responsible for the 20 million views this video is currently boasting.
I used to think of Right Said Fred as a one hit wonder, but a quick look into their bio shows me they sold 30 million records, had number 1 hits in dozens of countries, and even were the first band since The Beatles to go to number 1 in the US with their debut single, a record that was over 25 years old at the time of ‘Too Sexy’, which also won them some fancy awards.

Ladies & genitals, I’m too sexy for my shirt:

 

Next up, a classic that dates back all the way to 1986. Not only a great song, perfectly produced, the video has to be one of the best in music video history. That’s Peter Gabriel, by the way.

 

 

And, last for today’s selection (stay tuned for more!), we have something wildly unexpected from a special & brilliant actor, who is apparently a gifted dancer to boot.
Christopher Walken is indeed Fatboy Slim’s Weapon of Choice.
