This week’s Entertainment Weekly mentioned something I had not ever known before – that John Stamos played the congas in the video for the Beach Boys song “Kokomo.”
Somehow, however, they failed to mention John Stamos’s incredible pink tank top. Or the random shots of Tom Cruise with Tom Cruise hair (on anyone else that would be referred to as “stupid hair”). Or those girls who are so white hot they burn up the screen. The Boys themselves are actually the most normal looking people in this video – what else would you expect middle-aged men to wear on vacation if not white pants, beards, and a saxaphone?
Also in Entertainment Weekly this week, Owen Gleiberman reviews The Social Network, and, much like this blog, the whole thing turns into a Jesse Eisenberg love fest. Sample section: “With his close-cropped curls and pursed lips that make him look like a Jewish-preppy John Lydon….The actor takes on a whole new aspect-he’s a geek programmed for revenge. And he’s mesmerizing.” It’s intense.
So yeah – lest we forget, John Stamos was, at one point, really hot. And is now a member of the Beach Boys’ touring band.
