This week's adventure in freakiness comes from the very early days of MTV, and the very latest days of former Monkees member Mike Nesmith's solo career (wait, he had a solo career?). And I have to say that it is an amazing exercise in sheer WTF from the first frame to the very last. The song? A bizarro, repetitive keyboard vamp with sorta-spoken, sorta-sung lyrics that tell an utterly off-the-wall story of Hollywood sleaze. The video? An equally bizarre enactment of that story, interspersed with footage of Nesmith getting his groove on in various ridiculous outfits. The net result? Just under four minutes of epic insanity from our nation's rich pop culture history. See it after the jump
