Although Sadly "Rowdy"-less, The Legacy of "They Live!" Continues (In Music Video Form)

Check out this bitchin' music video, inspired by the classic John Carpenter movie "They Live." It makes you appreciate the awesomeness of that movie... and the awesomeness of bikinis. Fuck, I love that movie. And it works on a bunch of different levels, although is mainly great because:

1.) "Rowdy" Roddy Piper is the lead.

2.) The line: "I'm here to kick ass and chew bubble gum, and I'm all out of gum."

3.) The fact that "Rowdy" Roddy Piper's name in the movie is Nada.

4.) All the subliminal message signs that are up (and oddly, in black and white only... seems if the aliens can go undetected on our planet they'd at least know the wallop magenta can pack).

5.) The aliens are truly ludicrous looking. What the hell are they supposed to be?

6.) One of the greatest, longest fist fights in the history of cinema (Keith David vs. "Rowdy" over one simple action: putting on magic sunglasses... I've gotten into so many fights over the same thing).

There are about 5000 more awesome things about "They Live!"... just watch the movie. And invite people over. And serve lots and lots of drinks.
