11 Worst 80s Fads - 11 Points Countdown
written by Sam Greenspan

I'm back from a four-day trip to Mexico where I had limited Internet access but unlimited so-so resort food and Tecate Light. My agenda was simple. One, watch Thursday's episode of Community. Two, get this episode of my new series, the 11 Points Countdown, ready for today. Three, say hello to my special lady and dog in some order.

In this week's episode, my co-host is a good friend and very funny fellow named Jared Grey and we count down the results of my poll on the worst '80s fads. It's something of a video follow-up to a list I did back when I was first getting this site off the ground, 11 '80s Fads I Totally Bought Into.

And now, the video...




When this video gets to 11,111 views, I will release the photo of me with my mullet.

And, as promised, here are the full results from the voting...
  1. Mullets/rat tails
  2. Valley Girl-style talk
  3. Parachute/Zubaz pants
  4. Jeans with zippers on the legs
  5. Big hair
