PopDust.com has a story featuring five classic MTV videos that parody some of the iconic-but-overblown music videos of the time. One of which is David Lee Roth’s Just A Gigolo / I An’t Got Nobody” (1985).
The prototypical “parodying a bunch of recent videos” (PABORV?) video, David Lee Roth used the clip for his second solo single, a cover of Louis Prima’s melding of pop standards “Just a Gigolo” and “I Ain’t Got Nobody,” to have a little fun with his pop peers. Freed from the shackles of Van Halen, Roth roams onto the video sets of Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” Billy Idol’s “Dancing With Myself,” and anonymous Michael Jackson and Culture Club clips, generally creating chaos wherever he goes, and even causing poor Billy to get electrocuted. It all goes down on Dave TV, the 24-hour David Lee Roth video channel for which Dave himself is also the VJ, in some sort of weird version of egomaniacal music video purgatory.
