Fun With 80s Music Videos

Ha-ha, this is too funny! People with way too much time on their hands have gone back and retro'd popular music videos from the 80s.

The next is the same video, but using a different recorded track and lyrics. It's a "literal video," meaning someone made up words to go along with the exact images appearing in the video, to hilarious effect. It aired on Attack of the Show, so it's not like I discovered this or anything. :)

"This guy's gonna get an ass full of pipe wrench!"

LOL! I'm sorry, but that part just killed it for me. Who comes up with this stuff?
