Springsteen Video of the Week - The ORIGINAL "Dancing In The Dark" Video




Here, we see the original concept for Bruce's "Dancing In The Dark" music video.  Good.  Lord.  I cringe in vicarious embarrassment for Bruce every time I watched this - it is a difficult four minutes to sit through.  His dancing here can best be described as a cross between Carlton Banks and Elaine Benes.  However, stick around towards the end - Clarence makes a surprising, and very creepy, appearance.  While the final video is now more famous as being a corny time capsule, it is more impressive when you see how much they improved it from its original design.
