|UH! Does it hurt or are you enjoying this?|
This is pure MTV gold, the kind of stuff that DVR-ing VH1 Classic was made for. It's so sensationally bad that it's hard to tell whether this is unintentional comedy or intended unintentional comedy, like "Birdemic."
I could have spent all day picking through the amazing moments, faces and freaks sprinkled all over this clip.
"UH" moment. It's the exclamation point on a whirlwind sequence in which Hagar - a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, mind you - throws his guitar in the air, runs up the wall, flips, catches the guitar, jumps off the judge's bench and lands his nuts on the back of the security guard's head.
Since you know the song, and you know that the "UH" part is coming, you know something awesome is gonna happen there. What makes it sublime is that you can never remember what it is, and when it happens, it's just flat-out rad - the timing, the landing and the dork's face when he gets reverse tea-bagged.
But there's so much more. Let's go to the highlights.
Curly Mullet Guy has to be singled out, not only for his many psychotic faces, and not only for his sweet hairdo, but also for the fact that he looks like the one bad guy in "Roadhouse" who gets his throat ripped out by Dalton. Maybe it is the same guy, but I'm too lazy to look.
Any of these could have landed "I Can't Drive 55" in CDNR's hall of unheralded video excellence. But congratulations to Nut Cop for getting the job done.
