Forgotten Classic Video of the Week

My twisted sister had requested this Twisted Sister cover of "Leader of the Pack" a while back. I'd been putting it off but I can't think of anything better to play today, so Tootsie gets her wish - a bunch of hot tranny messes on motorcycles.

Although this video warns that it's rated "H for Humor," it's not really that funny. Curses. The rating system fails again.

It also has the "pointless cameo by an up-and-coming and/or overexposed celebrity" that so many '80s video directors used to raise their clip's coolness factor.

That is just wrong. She wasn't supposed to live. That's the whole point of the song, her meeting her tragic demise at the end.

Thanks for unearthing this little gem.

I do love the cojones it takes to commit to the "Epic (with a $2,000 budget)" video, though.

However, without your carefully crafted insight, the video's just not as good.

Wow. I'd forgotten about that. And now I remember why.

By the way, you've been tagged

It wouldn't be the 80s without a pointless cameo now would it?

Funny, my sister was always the Twisted Sister fan. And I developed an appreciation for them because of it. Andmy sis was younger than me. How open minded was I?

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
