Right at the beginning, is that some drug or a shot of the snow-capped Cascades?

The Hasselhoff action at 3:10 is pure perfection!

Let's see here. Inventory: An Awesome trumpet solo that the kids will really relate to, Bobby, Whitney, "Boogaloo Shrimp" Chambers Crippin by Teh Graveyard, LaToya, The Hoff, Scarface Piles, Stacey Keach, Toni Basil, Lyle Alzado hopped up on coke in a pool, Quincy Jones on cowbell,David Keith, Kim Fields, Nancy Reagan(?!), Gerald McRaney, Kasey Kasem, Tim Reid, Michael Bivins, Ronnie Bell, Eriq La Salle, The Governator as a trashman and a Fame callibre ensemble dance sequence at the end?

It's like a clearinghouse for celebs who got suspended sentences through a court ordered drug diversion and community service.

Without cocaine this video would've never been possible. Thank you cocaine and thank you Bradley Steinbacher for making psting it on Slog.

Stop the madness, indeed.

Wow. Bradley has carried his D.A.R.E. pledge much later in life than most. Kudos.

I thought it was Gil Kerlikowske on trumpet.

Needless to say, after watching it, I want a drink.

That is indeed Herb Albert.

OMG and Stacy Keach, of all people. And Tootie, from Facts of Life. And I can't swear by it but I think the drug dealer in that white limo was MC Skat Kat.

Wow, the 80s really kinda hurt.

PS, by the way, this video is best watched really baked.

"Some say no to drugs, and take a stand, but after the show they go lookin' for the dopeman." And I thought "We are the World" was bad . . .

This makes me REALLY WANT to drugs. Not just because it's that terrible - but it seriously looks like a rap video in a lot of places. Guns and bling and money, baby.

This turkey makes me want to start the madness. Steve, let's go halves on an 8-ball yah?

The look on the governator's face is grand. He looks so excited that he found somebody's stash in the garbage.

Is that Turbo or Ozone from Breakin' and Breakin' 2 Electric Boogaloo?

Did you see the dealer she had sitting in her closet with everything one could ever want?
Talk about convenience!
