AWA + Tears for Fears = $ You Too Clip

Kudos to the American Wrestling Association for paying tribute to its dwindling, increasingly apathetic, and likely undereducated fan base in the Summer of 1986 by slapping together a tastefully produced "Special Look" montage of its top stars and those rube fans that love and in some instances loathe them. While not quite the Wrestle Rock Rumble in terms of its catchiness, random inclusion of various Elvis impersonators and strippers made up to look like old timey movie stars, perpetual watchability, and sheer awesomeness, this clip still delivers the goods by way of Larry Nelson's coked up to the point that he can actually feel his teeth chattering and salt & pepper whiskers growing whilst offering his introductory remarks, the futuristic neon green & pink graphics, the utilization of the drunken karaoke anthem "Shout" by Tears for Fears as the accompanying soundtrack, and plenty of awesome snippets that feature a full seated (or if you prefer, pudgy assed) Sean Michaels, handlebar mustached racist South African Col. DeBeers, the perfect physical specimen that was the late, great Playboy Buddy Rose, and the run of the mill drop kick delivering antics of the monochrome skinned and faded canary yellow trunks sporting, graduating summa cum-laude from Camp Slaughter phenom Greg Gagne...amongst others.

Feel the love and appreciation.

Well done, Cathy Shields!

Never has Leon White looked quite so cuddly.

If you ever spot a "Larry Sucks" mesh trucker cap in the Ax Man hat bin, please let me know.

I wonder if the "You're doing good bud" guy is in any of the crowd shots. Sort of a Where's Waldo exercise on the mulleted midwesterners set.
