Bad Pop Video Made Fun

I like this kind of thing, especially when its reasonably well done. This one is.

Mind you, surely it's easy to deconstruct 80s pop videos wittily because they were universally appalling - while always being nerdily pretentious and often totally bewildering - in the first place. But I suppose you do have to make the effort to poke fun at them successfully, and the twit Yanks who made this thing have done just that.

I really really hate this Bonny Tyler-type, power ballad-type nonsense, though, Welsh though she is. It deserves full-on ridicule.

It went down well in Arkansas at the time, apparently, though. Go figure.

Hat-tip: Obnoxio
