Bizarre Video of the Day: “The New Monkees”

In the 1980s, MTV wanted to recapture the magic that was The Monkees, which the network was rerunning at the time, so they created New Monkees. Brian Boone over at Splitsider wrote an excellent article about why the show didn’t work. Here is the opening of the show, which for some reason features an imitation of the Rocky Horror lips, and the video to New Monkees’ single “What I Want.”

If I can find a full episode, I will review the show.
