I hope this is worth it.

I'm trying to load it through the Coral cache to make it easier for people who try to download it later, but at 2.4 KB/sec, 02:09:34 remain.

Here's the link. Assuming my download hasn't died (which, on preview, it looks like it may have) it will be useful in ~2 hours.

Damn. Sorry guys. The video d/l'd in the blink of an eye for me, but I'm at work on a T3. Is there a good free hosting source out there to put up a mirror?

Oh, man. Corey Feldman. And the title says "song". I don't even need to see this to know that it's gold. Thanks, dhoyt!

For those wondering what this is all about - from the Boston Globe, 3/24/05:

"STRANGE FINDINGS: LOST AND FOUND VIDEOS Josh Randall (a.k.a. Robotkid) and Peter Ledebur have combed through hundreds of hours of video from the 1980s, plucked out the most bizarre moments that the me-decade has to offer, and compiled them for a surreal video presentation tonight at ZuZu!. Thrill to Mr. T in a tuxedo attempting to play the cello, or watch Slim Goodbody teach the tykes about hormones. There’s also an informational video for the very cult-ish looking Interplanetary Confederacy Day. Toss in a singing Corey Feldman — don’t worry, there’s also Corey Haim — and lots of painful local cable access footage, and you have a view of the decade that not even Steve Guttenberg could have fathomed. ‘‘There’s a whole mini-subculture that thrives on this nonsense,’’ says Randall, and we can see why. It’s unintentionally hilarious and creepy. The show is free and starts at 10 p.m."

I only have the first 14 seconds of this, and already I'm hyp-mo-tized.

I saw enough... and it embarassed me, somehow. I had to put a stop to it.

Just seeing that jacket is enough. He doesn't even have to sing. Great googly moogly.

Any relation to these guys?

I remember flipping through the channels late one night, and landing on a Corey Feldman performance much like this one. Of course, I had to watch. About a minute into it, a group of 'little people' came onto the stage and started dancing with him. The look on his face was priceless. He was clearly shocked, but just kept on singing and dancing. Turns out it was the Howard Stern show (apparently back before some agents knew better than to book their clients on his show). Wrong on many levels, but one of the funnier (in a guilt-producing way) moments I've seen on TV.

I guess if Michael Jackson has to go away for a while we know who will fill in for him.

The coincidence to MJ moves is likely not coincidental.
