BIM BAM BOOM
What can I say but April Fool! The two boxers are the Kipper Kids, one of them is Bette Midlers husband. This is a musical number from the wonderfuly tacky surrealistic film Forbidden Zone. The first film scored by Danny Elfman while he was a member of Oingo Boingo, it was made by his brother and some how they got Viva and Herve Villachaize, (you know, the plane, the plane!). I have a copy on video tape and there are some wonderful moments...Danny Elfman as the devil singing Minnie the Moocher....Cardboard and tinfoil sets, cheap animation, lip synching...it works to make something like you've never seen before!
