Rhyming and dating

I was reminded it that it's Spring Break for some colleges...a time when students go to warm places and drink and act dumber more than usual. Here's a clip featuring the Beastie Boys from MTV's Spring Break 1987 coverage of the wackiness in Daytona Beach. Back before the Beastie Boys became sensitive and stuff. Try not to cringe.

That is just too much! Nice find, Grieve.

Somewhere, on an old VHS cassette, I have some MTV footage of Gilbert Gotfried hanging out on the beach in Daytona with Buster Poindexter (aka Mr. Johansen) from (I think) Spring Break 1988 or 1989. Have not seen it for years. I'll have to dig that out.

Thanks, NYCD! Here's another Beasties-related clip from that Spring Break:

Oh, and I feel as if I've seen that Buster Poindexter Spring Break performance somewhere...be great if you could track that down!
