Rockin' Out To A Literal 80's Video

     80's music was hilarious.  Now, I ain't going to lie, I liked it, I still do.  But music video's in the 80's were tremendously funny.  Heavy Metal, Pop, or Rap, it didn't matter.  Across every genre of music the video's were 99% comedies.  The greatest thing about 80's video's was they had absolutely nothing to do with the song.  
     Music videos were new, and the bands, nor their record companies had any idea what to do in them so, mostly they just made up some crazy concept for the video that they thought would be popular with viewers.  The result was a lot of wild videos that made no sense.  As an example I've included the literal video of the 80's song Safety Dance below to illustrate how the song would go if it matched it's video.  Enjoy,
