This Hammerjack's promo video from the '90s is hilarious
There's a lot of crap on YouTube, but every once in a while, you strike gold.
Today, my cup ranneth over with awesomeness, courtesy of this hilarious Hammerjack's promo video. Everybody grab your Aqua-net -- we're about to step back in time, to an era of big hair, raised glasses and lowered inhibitions ...
I love love love the narration. It's classic. Also classic are the girl's teeth at :28, the mustaches throughout, and the butt-less chaps at 2:54.
"At 10 p.m., it's time to party -- to walk in the door and have Hammerjack's smack you right in the face. All of the sudden, you're in, well, you're in Hammerjack's pal."
Yes you are.
"If you were to make something that, by itself, represented all that rock 'n' roll means in America, it's Hammerjack's. It's so perfect they ought to move the whole thing into a museum, building, band, bouncers, dancers, bartenders, beer and all, and label it 'rock 'n' roll, near the end of the 20th century.'"
I couldn't have said it better myself, narrator. Too bad the club moved to downtown Baltimore a few years later, and was eventually turned into Bourbon Street. All good things ...
Anybody recognize any of the folks in the video? Where are they now?
