I never imagined…

…that one day I’d live in the town where this awesome video was filmed:


Here’s the history of this observation:
1. Today is Jan’s birthday.
2. One of his birthday presents is a melodica.
3. I said, “Hey, the Hooters used one of those!”
4. He said, “The who?”*
5. I go to YouTube and show him this video.
6. At the beginning of the video, we see a sign for the Exton Drive-In.
7. “Is that OUR Exton?” we wonder. Could be, since the Hooters were a Philadelphia band.
8. After the video—and after I’ve recovered from the visual onslaught of ’80s hair—I google “exton drive in hooters” and pray I don’t get hits for restaurants with scantily clad waitstaff.
9. The first hit is for this site. Awesome.

* I like to joke that he was in a coma during the 1980s. Seriously, he pretty much avoided popular culture during that decade, preferring instead to play and listen to music from the 1960s and 1970s.

    Very nice! I knew the Hooters were from the area but hadn’t seen that vidya before.
    I saw an episode of “Mountain Stage Live” recorded live at the Keswick in May 2007; Eric Bazillian and Rob Hyman opened the show, playing a stripped-down acoustic “All You Zombies” and a cover of Don Henley’s “The Boys of Summer” and then closed their set with, oh yeah, “And We Danced.”
    Happy belated birthday to Jan! :-)

    That is such a sweet video. I had forgotten about the Hooters. Thanks for sharing. Happy birthday, Jan!
