I'm a child of the 80's, and I'm totally proud of that fact. The movies, music, and clothing styles that surfaced in the 80's were totally radical and might even be considered bossanova. We loved our slap bracelets and jelly shoes and poofy hair, and we loved wearing neon colors with spandex and leg warmers. It was just too cool for school.
One of my favorite movies as a kid growing up was The Karate Kid.
Duh. We all loved that movie. Anybody who says they didn't like the Karate Kid is either a communist, or lying. The movie rocked. It was the poster child for 80's cinema and we all loved it.
Guess what? Somebody made a video about The Karate Kid!!!! I shit you not.
The group is called No More Kings and the video is called "Sweep the Leg".
I love this video. You'll notice that the main "star" of the video who plays "Johnny" from the movie is ACTUALLY the actor who played Johnny Lawrence in the movie. His name is William Zabka, and he starred in a few films other than The Karate Kid movies.
Go ahead. Click the IMDB link. You know you want to.
Apparantly, William Zabka wrote and directed this video, which makes it even cooler, in my opinion. There are other guest appearances by former cast members of the movie, in this video. Keep a look out for:
And at the end, the man himself: Ralph Macchio “Daniel LaRusso”
Here is the video. Check it out. Enjoy. Just don't go tight-roll your jeans when you're done.
