Music Video Thursday: "Go For Soda"

And we're going back to the 80s again - I had a heck of a time coming up with something for today's music video, but I finally found it in the form of Kim Mitchell's "Go For Soda":



The only question I have: what the heck was that guy (the guy in the video with the afro, not Kim Mitchell) supposed to be smoking anyhow? He takes a drag off it, next thing you know there's a little guy jumping out of the TV and a rock concert in the fridge. And at the end of the video, is it just me or does he sound a little... baked?

Methinks there's more than soda at work here...

UPDATE 2008-04-05: The YouTube copy of the video has been pulled, but it looks like Mr. Mitchell himself has posted it on MySpace, complete with full credits listing "Jacky Malbogat" as "Kid":



Thanks to "Anonymous" for pointing out that the original had been pulled, thanks to Kim Mitchell for being cool enough to post it himself, and thanks to Dr. Pepper for letting me go for soda right now myself.

Well, I was just going 2 tell u that it was a simple ciggarette he is smoking in the video, but I see that someone actually told u this. Do u think that the post by "anonymous" (malissa) was really that guys daughter? Who knows? All I know 4 sure is that he wasn't smoking weed! I can't tell u how I know 'cause bible-school-attending-saskatchewan-prairie-girls aren't supposed to know thoses things. U know that both of our families would have a cow if they knew half of what we did in high school - especially since they were paying 4 it!

Malissa is in fact one of his daughters, I know them all very well. My question is why the heck is the video not available anymore???

YouTube has it and it's 2016. I'd love to see these guys live. I have to go for a soda now.
