Can You Imagine a Music Video Like This Oingo Boing Clip Getting Made Today?

Outside of a couple hits (“Weird Science,” “Dead Man’s Party” and maybe “Stay”) in Canada, Oingo Boingo didn’t make much of an impact in Canada, so I confess to never seeing this video before.  Can you imagine something this creepy and paedo being made today? Nope. Me, neither. Marvel at the cringe-inducing “Little Girls” from 1981. The story here.
