I need to confess.... I bought this when it came out...

The 1980s was the era of music videos. The 1985 Bears Super Bowl shuffle opened the floodgates for sports teams singing & dancing. The 1986 #NYGiants had the "We are the NY Giants" video featuring @2FIVESPORTS, Roberts, Headen & friends. Sadly it's too long to show it all. - ( New Window )
Ooooo, you keep

that to yourself.
That was cringe-worthy

... glad that it got little to no airtime. Would have been tough to live that down.
That's some high quality production value, right there...

I had so much Giants fever then after all those years of futility (Late 60's and 70's).

I remember that it was a big deal just to get LT in as a cameo.

I haven't seen it in years, but I still remember... "My Name is Lasker......" and "Don't do drugs".

I remember the hasty interviews in the city.

It was a great time to be a Giants fan! For that I will always love this video!!!

To be fair, when it comes to cringeworthy, that doesn’t even register compared to much of the performance entertainment from the 80s.

And I’m a card carrying 80s kid, loved the decade, but stylistically it was a debacle.
I can't unsee that...

this video, must have been more localized.
The only players I actually recognize are Mark Collins,
and Roberts. Yes it was cringeworthy.

as historians try and piece together what humanity was like in the 20th century, they find this video.
