    Most of you youngins won't remember this commercial, but here's the audio from a 1983 MTV commercial that aired on local tv stations for MTV, featuring David Bowie, Pat Benatar and the Police! Back before MTV WAS the man, they were fighting the man. :)

    ...ok I don't remember it either... I was 2. :) Still cool though. :)

    Martha Quinn was teh hot.

    That Adam dude had some pretty "on the edge" hair... My parents used to make fun of him.

    Then my hair got to his length and general shape and they laughed at me.

    Then it got longer. And longer. Then I got some cut and got a slammin 1988 rat's tail.

    I was the shit.

    Remote control is where Colin Quinn got his start, and that Chick that was the showcase girl is now famous too (Shit.. what was her name?)


    Ken Oden has gone nowhere. His on-screen lackeys prolly don't even remember him.

    MTV died when they did "Yo! MTV Raps!" for 14 hours a day. They are also the goat-rapists that started that Logo in the lower corner bullshit that everyone picked up.

    True, MTV does suck big balls...the Real World sucks big balls...all the crappy reality shows on MTV suck big balls...but what's wrong with Abercrombie and Fitch...I'm not rich, and I wear that shit all the time. Stop hating on AF, they make nice stylish clothes!
