When I was younger and throwing a hissy fit, there were two things that calmed me down.
The first was a VHS tape of Michael Jackson’s Concert at Budapest that my parents recorded from VH1. They popped it in, I shut the hell up.
The second was also a VHS tape of the Beach Boys video “Kokomo”, also recorded from either VH1 or MTV.
For whatever reason this morning, I watched this video, and I was taken back. By the music, but the old cocktail footage, by UNCLE JESSE IN A PINK TANK TOP PLAYING DRUMS.
First of all–he has always been hot. I love him–still–always. I think John Stamos in this video was the cause of my sexual awakening. Well, that might be a little exaggerated. It was the moment that I realized I really liked boys–even greasy ones with pink tank tops. Gimme a break, it was the ’80s.
Anyway, here’s the video. Happy nostalgia!
