Welcome back to our series Rembert Explains the '80s. Every so often, we'll e-mail 25-year-old Rembert Browne a video from the 1980s that he hasn't seen. Rembert will write down his thoughts as he's watching it, then we'll post those thoughts here. This week's installment was selected by Grantland editor-in-chief Bill Simmons: "Say Say Say" by Michael Jackson and Sir Paul McCartney. If you have an idea for a future episode of Rembert Explains the '80s, e-mail us at email@example.com.
Rembert's Note: I know this song, because it was on Thriller, but the only thing I think I remember about the video is that there was a bank robbery. And maybe face paint?
0:04 Why is that white lady shouting? Why?
0:09 Oh hi, Sir Paul McCartney. Why is he looking so Grapes of Wrath-y right now? Dude was in The Beatles.
0:15 Sir Paul is slanging "wonder potion" at all these sad, downtrodden people. Seems rude.
