Watch: This One-Hour Supercut Tribute to the 1980s Is Amazing

Mar 27, 2014

Few things rival the unabashed excitement people have for the 1980s — a time when everyone was dreaming of the future and anything seemed possible. Audio-visual remix artist Ian Edgar traveled back in time to the decadent decade and created a one-hour supercut that celebrates the music, movies and imagery of the time period.

It’s basically one long club mix on steroids, but one you’d actually buy (on cassette, even, since we’re feeling nostalgic and everything). Film fans will instantly recognize the movies featured throughout. There’s the famous “Look, man, I ain't fallin' for no banana in my tailpipe!" scene from Beverly Hills Cop. We also get snippets of Kelly LeBrock’s Lisa from Weird Science wrangling adoring geeks Anthony Michael Hall and Ilan Mitchell-Smith. Mr. Mom, 9 to 5, The Breakfast Club, Three Amigos, Beetlejuice and Dirty Dancing are just a few of the other film favorites revisited.

And fear not, there’s plenty of John Cusack to go around. Edgar created the video to promote the National Geographic show The '80s: The Decade That Made Us at Austin’s SXSW, where it played before the Girl Talk performance. He even dedicated it to a 1980s icon, the dearly departed Corey Haim. Take a trip down memory lane and feel the love — the neon, synth-fueled love.
