Surely I need this vintage, pink, tulle, mullet skirt for something, right?
Maybe it’s time for me to fulfill my ambitions of recreating Pat Benatar’s 1983 “Love Is a Battlefield” video. The skirt would fit right in.
This video has so much hilarity in it, but my favorite bit is at the beginning when Pat is running away from home. After a confrontation with her angry father (“If you leave this house now, you can just forget about coming back!”) and anxious mother, Pat looks up to see her beloved younger brother gazing at her through the window. Pat is playing a teenager, but she looks to be about 30 — which she was when this was shot — so I like to think she’s saying goodbye to her son. Wait! Maybe he’s her brother AND her son! It’s Chinatown in a music video! No wonder that dad is so bent out of shape.
