Over Christmas, I gave my mom and sister a special gift: My sister and I had recorded Friday Night Videos on several videotapes back in the 80’s, and I still had the tapes. I converted them to DVD and presented them to my family.
Among the gems I had forgotten about on the tape was Men at Work’s classic song and video, It’s a Mistake, a biting and very funny anti-war polemic. This was the golden era of music videos: you’ll note there isn’t a scantily-clad woman to be found in the entire video! The song and the video seem even more relevant in Bush’s America than they did in Reagan’s America.
The video is below the fold. I didn’t upload my own copy, I simply found someone else online who already had. I love the internets!
