The Pointless Sisters – The Reagan Dance
This next classic comic originally published in ‘Rock Video Magazine‘ back in 1985 parodies the Pointer Sisters ‘Neutron Dance‘ video from Eddie Murphys ‘Beverly Hills Cop’.
This version called ‘The Reagan Dance’ substitutes then president Ronald Reagan in all of Eddies scenes, and instead of the movie theater location of the original music video…this spoof is set at a press conference.
I generally don’t do political humor…And if any of these comics have dated…it’s this one. Visual references to Fritz Mondale (‘There you go again!’)..and his VP nominee Geraldine Ferrarro will definatly go over a lot of heads today. But I do love that ‘3 female negros causing a disturbance’ line on the 2nd panel of page 3.
