The gang behind Take Me Home Tonight, the title of which is an 80’s reference, decided to up the stakes of the reference game in this video, which manages to nod to damn near every movie made during the decade. What’s the purpose of this video? I dunno. It reminds us that Take Me Home Tonight is a movie that’s coming out (which serves the producers), and it’s enjoyable to watch (which serves the viewer). Win-win. So sit back and watch Topher and the gang just…just live, man. They’ve already done two trailers, so rather than give too much of the movie away, they just decided to have some fun with the characters. Hard not to get on board with that.
Cinema Blend caught references to 32 different movies in this clip/music video, so if you want to see a list much more exhaustive than my paltry 6, click here. Otherwise, let the references wash over you like so much cocaine-laced bathwater. What? Yes.
Take Me Home Tonight hits theaters March 4, 2011.
