In the first decade of MTV, bands sometimes delivered amazing music videos, full of breathtaking visuals and incredible creativity. And sometimes they did not. Not even close. From spectacularly bad choices to some real head-scratching concepts, some 80s music videos were so terrible that they graduate to a level where we must ask, “What were they thinking?” With information straight from interviews with the artists and video directors themselves, Music Video Time Machine’s resident video expert Stephen Pitalo will explain how inexplicable clips by Journey, Diana Ross, the Jacksons, Hall & Oates and Prince (among others), made it to the small screen.
This is an official New York Comic Con Presents event.
