The Campiest Video Of All Time #1
Posted: 2/19/08 at 1:35am
Youtube videos are still allowed, right?

I nominate Liza Minelli's "Don't Drop Bombs" video to be the campiest video of all time.

Wrong, sir. Wrong! Under section 37B of the contract signed by him, it states quite clearly that all offers shall become null and void if - and you can read it for yourself in this photostatic copy - "I, the undersigned, shall forfeit all rights, privileges, and licenses herein and herein contained," et cetera, et cetera..."Fax mentis incendium gloria cultum," et cetera, et cetera..."Memo bis punitor delicatum"! It's all there, black and white, clear as crystal! You stole fizzy lifting drinks. You bumped into the ceiling which now has to be washed and sterilized, so you get nothing! You lose! Good day sir!

I love the fact that near the end of the video, we got both jazz hands AND spirit fingers. Liza was both passe and ahead of her time. Something entertainers so rarely ever intend to accomplish.

She was so much prettier when she was on coke.

Not sure it's the campiest video of all time, but it's the worst one.

Craptastic!

Are we sure it isnt Andrea Martin doing a parody? I kept expecting Lola Heatherton to come in for the chorus.

I like the video parodies in WORDS & MUSIC (or whatever that Barrymore/Grant romantic comedy was called).
just keep swimming along, don't rise to the....

That Liza video made me dance along with it, as well as do a jazz run around the room.
"Safety Dance" is an evergreen that will never go out of style, so long as there are 80's compilations being made.
To answer both of these, I give you Flame Fortune, an Australian artiste discovered by the late Michael Hutchence, who penned this ridiculous number for her.
Needless to say, after the extravagence of the video, she was never heard of again.
Where are you,Flame?

My humble contribution...Pia Zadora and Jermaine Jackson, "When the Rain Begins to Fall". Craptacular!

UHG...thanks, newgirl!

I was watching that video while googling Pia-freakin-Zadora when IT came up behind me to upgrade my computer!

I'm pegged for sure now!

I'm looking at them, and they are moving of their own accord, towards this Olivia classic- pardon me as I dance around the room again.
The Rumour.

Sorry, doodle. But if it makes you feel better, I've had that song stuck in my head for 24 years...AND IT NEVER STOPS.
