"Hey, It's Friday, Let's Watch A Kick-Ass Music Video!"

This video seemed a lot cooler 22 years ago. When I was nine.

Duran Duran sang the title song to A View To A Kill, then and now one of the worst James Bond movies ever made. The video seems to put the band members in the midst of the movie - only it really doesn't. It mixes clips of Roger Moore running around the Eiffel Tower to Simon Le Bon and Co. walking around the Eiffel Tower. And once in a while, Le Bon will pull out a Walkman and blow something up, even if it's apparently in Antarctica. And then we get another shot of Roger Moore running.

Like I said, this video seemed a lot cooler 22 years ago. When I was nine. And apparently retarded.

If you know it's crap, why did you decide to give us a lame-ass music video instead of a kick-ass one?

Because it's Duran Duran, and no matter how lame-ass it is, Duran Duran always kicks ass.

And the song is still good.

Lame or not, I can't help but have fond memories of this. It came out during one of my phases of massive James Bond Nerddom and though in retrospect the movie sucks pretty hard, the song holds up pretty well.

"Pretty well"? That song is the fucking mad skills. Kudos for being able to appreciate it in spite of the utter lunacy of the video.
