CLIP OF THE MOMENT: ROSEMARY CLOONEY ON "TWILIGHT THEATER" (1982)
Another clip from NBCs tv program "Twilight Theater"! (see Pee Wee Herman's appearance below) In the skit "Common Nightmares", an intro revolving around the Barnes and Barnes song "Party In My Pants" leads into Rosemary Clooney singing her classic pop hit "Come On-a My House". The shot of the rotating pig with candles was taken from a Residents music video. Also at the "party" are a few New Wave icons from bygone years (remember Spazz Attack from Devo's "Satisfaction" video?). This may not seem like a big deal nowadays but this was some freaky shit for a major network in 1982!
