The Popstream: David Lee Roth! En Español!
Yes, this is David Lee Roth performing (i.e. lip-synching) Eat 'Em and Smile single "Goin' Crazy" as "Loco Del Calor" on Mexican TV sometime in the mid-late '80s. There's technically nothing intrinsically absurd about the concept of Roth singing in Spanish -- at least not until you couple it with the footage of the stuff he was wearing during his first big shot at solo stardom -- it's just that if you didn't know about DLR's bilingual aspirations this clip feels like some odd transmission from an alternate universe that Lou Dobbs wakes up screaming in the middle of the night imagining. We are not this awesome, and we will never be this awesome.
