OOPS – No cultural appropriation for me today. Let’s have a little fun unrelated to Mexico.

I love cheesy old music videos, whether the cheesiness is intentional or not. Here are a few examples, saving a special one for last.

ABC

ABC’s videos were always intentionally goofy, so when I say it’s cheesy I mean it affectionately.

The B-52’s

It took a while for me to ‘get’ the B-52’s. Everything about them is goofy and fun, and their best-known song is a perfect example.

Siouxsie & the Banshees

Some parts of this video such as the dancing skeleton are so cheap I’ll call this one cheesy even though most of it is fairly normal.

a-ha

Maybe you’ve never seen one of these ‘literal videos’, so let me explain. Some genius with a lot of time on his hands took this ridiculous video (and others) and replaced the singing with similar-sounding lyrics reflecting what’s happening in the video.
