The Georgia Straight musical advent calendar for Christmas 2018—Day 15: Bryan Adams

    1 of 2 2 of 2

      This is possibly the most ’80s thing ever: Bryan Adams and Pee-wee Herman celebrating the holidays with a fake reggae song.

      I have so many questions.

      Who convinced Adams, quite possibly the whitest man alive, that reggae was a good genre for him?

      Who is the dude with the mullet? I’m guessing he’s an MTV personality forgotten in the mists of time.

      Pee-wee is sporting fake dreadlocks at one point. Do Rastafarians even celebrate Christmas?

      What’s with the Mr. T doll? Is it because the real Mr. T refused to take part in this hot mess? (If so, he made the wrong choice, because this hot mess is amazing.)

      I could probably find all the answers somewhere in the murky deoths of the Internet, but I really don’t care enough to look. As Adam Driver’s character in While We’re Young says, “Let’s just not know.”
