Back in 91, before all the glitz and graphics and manipulatively salacious voiceovers, all we had at MTV were great bands, board games and a huge amount of lard. Thats no clever wordplay. I literally mean that we had a ton of Crisco on hand. Or so it would seem from the very lo-fi production below, in which Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic strips down to briefs and gets a full body Crisco massage from Kurt Cobain and Dave Grohl, before playing slippery Twister with Smashing Pumpkins.
Billy Corgan has long hair. I forgot that was even possible. Also, pre-peroxide James Iha looks so nervous, its amazing he didnt die. Watch as a very lively (read: alive) Kurt Cobain playfully launches globs of Crisco across the room as a quiet audience inexplicably barely looks up from their beers and cigarettes. It looks like its about one in the afternoon. What?! The nineties officially made absolutely no sense.
