Remember This?

On the question of how to resolve departmental disputes, Stephen Bess said, “Wouldn’t it be cool if everyone could just battle it out on the cardboard like breakdancers and pop-lockers in the 80’s? Sure, a few people would get hurt on those difficult moves, but nothing too serious. It would be funny too.” I agree.

When this video came out, I was in school. The song is ridiculous and the music is bad, but we were fascinated by many music videos then, because they were new.

It was a difficult semester. One evening I asked my roommate a rhetorical question: “What are we going to do?”

“Walk like an Egyptian,” he said.

Years later, it is again the end of a difficult term. I am walking like an Egyptian now.

Axé.

  1. LOL! I remember that song and video. This brought back memories of moon pies and Solid God dancers. :) Z, you have a great sense of humor. Thanks for the memories.

  2. Ooops! Solid Gold Dancers, but Solid God dancers would be interesting. lol! :)

  3. i always thought it would be great of the battles of the world could be fought virtually…noone getting hurt and the outcome would basically have no purpose except to placate the participants…

    that way we could spend our money on curing the worlds ills instead of creating more

    love the video!!!

    Maybe we could have thrumb wrestling matches and starring contests as well.

    Back in the day, I loved this video. I loved all the girls groups–with their mix and match clothes. oh, and Madonna. Gee, I’m glad that phase is over.
