Let’s just get this out of the way… Cute video, funny dad, and exactly the type of stuff I’m going to do with my kids. Blah, blah, blah alright.
On to the more important note here… Have you ever seen the music video for Hello?
Lionel Richie’s music video for “Hello” is one of the top five creepiest things you will ever watch. Don’t get me wrong, fire song. All time fire song. But the video? Weirdest thing you’ll ever watch. I mean the entire basis of the video is that Lionel is a teacher who is in love with his blind student. Just off that sentence alone the entire production team of this video should be thrown in jail. But then the video starts, and WHOA is there some stuff there. Lionel proceeds to stare at her all class long
Do whatever this is as she walks by
Follow her in the hallway
Come into a different classroom to talk to her
Come into dance class to stare at her
Call her at home. Again, he’s her teacher
And finally to top the entire thing off… SHE FUCKING MOLDS HIS FACE!!!
And they fall in love. Hands down the weirdest, creepiest music video of all time. But it was the 80’s and everyone was so high that this was just totally normal to them. You want to know why all of America’s 80’s heroes have ended up so weird and corrupt and creepy? Look no further than this video getting green lit.
