Viva Variety Hearts Ms. Pac-MAn

ms-pac-man-viva

Immediately after the seminal sketch series The State went off the air, four cast members expanded an obscure State sketch about a bizarre European variety show into the Comedy Central series Viva Variety. While there are many highlights from the series, this one is most suited for retro tastes: a Numanesque love song about the lovely Ms. Pac-Man, as performed by “Johnny Blue Jeans.”

From the middle of nowhere in the Pacific Northwest, I contribute to the Retroist, write for trivia publications, and blog about music in a humorous fashion. I feel about "Back to the Future" the way you feel about "Star Wars." Also, I'm married and have a child (sorry ladies, orphans).
