Remember Showbiz Pizza from the 80s? The place with the animatronic characters like the giant scary gorilla behind the keyboard, and the girl mouse that sang the “oh Mickey you’re so fine” song all the time? There were video games and skee-ball, and of course they served pizza – and Cokes were bought by the pitcher-full.
Anyway, I got a Google Alert today because it picked up “Alabama” and “art” – and it somehow (somehow…somehow…) led to a video on YouTube by a guy named Chris Thrash who lives here in Alabama and programs the old Showbiz Rock-afire sets to new songs. It is creepy and weird and hilarious all at the same time. There are a whole bunch of them here on YouTube. It even got mentioned on MTV news this week!
