HEAVY METAL PARKING LOT (1986)
Being old enough to have lived through the era when heavy metal bands like Judas Priest and Iron Maiden ruled the world this is a pretty embarrassing look back at those days. A short video featuring drunken/stoned typical metal-heads taped in the parking lot of a Judas Priest/Dokken concert you get a non-stop stream of rambling loud-mouths, ugly hairstyles and ridiculous fashions it's really the perfect portrait of the 80's just the way I remember them. Back in the day my friends and I made a few stupid drunken videos just fucking around with the old camcorder luckily none of those has gotten the wide release that this one has. That has got to be a hell of a way to be remembered. The one mullet-haired fellow in the matching zebra-striped ensemble who hates punk rock and Madonna was the highlight to me with his well thought out criticisms.
