Because You Deserve It
Need a little help getting over hump day? I suggest you clear four minutes from your schedule and watch the 1987 music video for "What Have I Done to Deserve This." As videos go it is pretty pedestrian, but the song is about as perfect as pop music gets and the video is so very, very gay that I challenge you to isolate the one element that could be crowned the gayest. Having to choose between the Pet Shop Boys and Dusty Springfield is hard enough as it is, but when you factor in the double Axel-esque leaping that occurs around the 2:20 mark and the fact that Dusty's hair, makeup, and general demeanor give you an idea of what would happen if a drag queen and drag king mated, that's when things start to get interesting.
