YOU CAN BE A ROBOT TOO

Few things are as beautiful as this. If anyone knows anyone who was a part of making this happen, please let me know. I'm serious...



Oh yeah, and if you haven't pre-ordered our latest DVD yet, remember you can always change. Just tell yourself today is going to be different. Today is the fucking day.

This is the greatest Prince cover I ever heard! Or at least, I assume it is.

Are we not men?!

That song rules - the Wiz inspired robot however, not so much!

Since nobody has pointed this out yet:

This is from a particularly insane episode of "Kids Incorporated". The show was about a band of pre-teen kids who did covers of popular songs. The bar(!?) in which they performed was ran by a guy who was also a wacky inventor, and the silver robot was one of his inventions. The show's producers loved the hell out of all the magical video effects of 1985, so it could supply EIT with fodder for *years*.

Thanks for reminding me to take my antipsychotics.

Kids Incorporated, might I add, also starred such celebs as Fergie, Mario Lopez and Jennifer Love-Hewitt (uh...I know I said "celebs", sorry).

They covered all of the most popular music that the kids love, like Huey Lewis and the News and The Cure and The Alan Parsons Project.

They'd kick Daft Punk's ass, that's for sure.

Yessss...I recognized it as an episode of Kids Incorporated!!

How sad is that?

I actually somewhat jammed to this song! It had a kind of early Gary Numan thing going on.

But anyways, yeah. It'll most likely haunt my dreams.

filmscience said...

"Robots"... doing "The Robot"?

Is there anything LESS creative than that?

Good god, don't forget Martika, kicklecubicle.

I think it is transcendent

I vaguely remember Kids Incorporated having a time travel episode and them deciding at the end that they liked the 80s better because they had, now get this, air conditioning in cars!

Yall's posters have really been rockin'!

And so does this video. Some colanders, spray paint, and some scaffolding can sure go a long way.

You know what's really weird? For one of the videos for "Freakazoid," the dorky guy who gets TRON-itized into the sexy computer world (Ooh! Sexy Polygons!) looks suspiciously like a young Daniel Quinn, of "Scanner Cop" fame. Here it is on youtube:

you want to see terrible: later on when they kept on with Kids Inc. way after it should have been cancelled (like 1993-ish,) the actress Ashley Johnson (as in youngest sister Chrissy from Growing Pains) was on it. They had her sing the song "This Time" by Janet Jackson, from her album "janet." That song wasn't even a single, AND it's extremely sexually explicit ("You run around with them nasty hos, how long did you think I would take this?") So they just changed around the lyrics.

Again. Little Chrissy from Growing Pains singing an obscure, sexually explicit Janet Jackson track. YouTube it. It's PAINFUL.
