Tremendously great.

I was wondering what "The Grabowski's" were, and it looks like (if anyone is wondering) it is the name he gave the Chicago Bears when he coached them:

"Mike Ditka has described the Bears affectionately as his Grabowskis because the Bears reflect the work ethic, the attitude of a city and a people who aren't afraid to work hard to get ahead and achieve a part of the American Dream for themselves and their families."

I wonder what he nicknamed the New Orleans Saints when he coached them.

That blew my mind. Like I knew it would.

He looks relatively slender.

Laugh all you want. This video made it to gold and platinum in 1987.

(But, uh, yeah, it's still jaw-droppingly funny. So seriously, laugh all you want.)

And that's the sound of my tool! [obscene thrusting]

I'd like to apologize on behalf of the citizens of Chicago. We were hoping that video wasn't going to get out again.

My god. I've finally found something that actually "NEEDS LESS DITKA"

The music is actually sort of catchy.

I don't know about Ditka, but it could definitely use more cowbell.

We are the Grabowskis, baby.

I saw some Grabowskis doing a little Grab Asski.

*superbowl shuffles out of the thread*

Reminds me of the Village People Big Mac song. Thus, I conclude that this is something between disco and square dancing music, but certainly not rapping.

I remeber the whole Grabowski thing when I was growing up there, even the phrase Grabowski Shuffle, but I never heard the song. I am sure we have a copy of the superbowl Shuffle somewhere in my parents' stuff.

I couldn't sit through the whole video.

That made me cry a little! I vaguely remember seeing this when it was first unleashed. It was an effort to modernize the adage that Chicago is "The City that Works" (as tpl1212 has already alluded to).

Nonetheless, it remains a somewhat disturbing document of late 80's strangeness.

Oh, Ditka. Was there anything he couldn't do?

That one dude -- the dude, the fuckin' dude, the iron-pumping dude -- looks like the love child of Joe Piscopo and Lou Ferrigno. Therefore I dub him Joel Ferrignopo. Or perhaps Loe Piscerrigno.

I get that Grabowski is supposed to sound like a name from the Eastern Bloc, but why the USSR sickle and hammer in the background?

The name Grabowski is from The Simpsons.
posted by dwordle at 5:24 PM on December 7, 2005


But yet, it predates The Simpsons, which weren't on the air when this went gold (except maybe as shorts on the Tracey Ullman show).
