Retro 80’s TV Ad Redefines Punk Music, Not For the Better
noun: punk rock
- 1.a loud, fast-moving, and aggressive form of rock music, popular in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
In the words of Inigo Montoya in the classic flick "The Princess Bride", "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."
Clearly, the folks at Warner Bros. music in the early 90's had absolutely ZERO concept of what "punk" music was as evidenced by this :60 second (it feels much longer than that!) infomercial pimping their two CD compilation with such thrashers as Huey Lewis and the News, Toni Basil and Erasure.
Also as obvious, it's abundantly clear that those folks spared every expense on wardrobe (nice wig, jackwagon!) and actors/actresses ("YEAH!)
