I don’t really know what to say about this other than I’m glad I didn’t do something like this back when I was in high school (or at least nothing that I videotaped).

Here’s the explanation from the guy who made it:

here’s the thing. I made this, back in ’87, because I was totally in love with this girl Heidi, and I was going to send it too her. after finishing it, I regained my sanity and this went into my “skeleton” closet never to be seen again. Recently(being right before I moved out to LA in November of 06), I started to think, what the hell? It’s totally embarrassing but so f’ing what? If you can’t laugh at stuff like this then you might as well be dead. dead I say!
