You Tube of the Week: Jean-Paul Gaultier

Anyone remember this track? A one-off attempt at pop stardom, fashion guru Jean Paul Gaultier's "Aow Tou Dou Zat" (or "How To Do That"), was released in 1989. Part performance art, part fashion advertisement, and part self-parody, to me the song always signaled the end of the Me Decade. It's got style and sass, sure...but is it any wonder that listeners, after this and Right Said Fred, would soon hunger for the relative substantiality of 90's grunge gods Nirvana and Pearl Jam? At least it can still be enjoyed as kitsch, though...revel in the trashy theatricality...
