Hmmm. The maypole dancing was kind of cool. The rest of this video I found oddly creepy. Even for 1982.

Luisa Perkins said...

Well, THAT took me back a few years! I'd forgotten how cute that guy was, even with his odd gesticulations. It's an infectious song....

Now I want a maypole.

LOL, I'm RIGHT with Luisa on that one! In every way. And I've always loved that song, too, and forgot about it. And I want a maypole, too!

I love that song. I'd never seen the video, though. The maypole dancing was fun.

I love the 80's/Medieval combination. With the spasmodic movements. I actually remember watching this video long, long ago. Thanks for the laugh!

Hey! Where did my comment go? It was here last night.

All I said was Men Without Hats were a Canadian band. I had a big crush on Ivan in high school. Oh boy, that video sure is dated now.

I love Men Without Hats! My best friend and I knew ALL the words and would dance spastically to this whenever we heard it.

I think the last time was at her wedding, 5 years ago!

I LOVED that song and admit it IS on my iPOD! :)

It is on my iPod too!!! I'm an 80s music freak!!! BEST era ever (not so much for hair or dress . . . can't lie).

Suddenly realizing why MTV was banned in our home.

We had a low thresh hold for nightmare inducing materials. This would have rendered us insomniacs for ever.

Good God.
