Overview
Michael Nesmith's groundbreaking music & comedy classic-Winner of the very first Grammy Award for Video!
Join Mike Nesmith (of The Monkees fame, as well as the producer of Repo Man) for this revolutionary 'video album' of songs, skits and random strangeness that became a direct influence on everything from MTV to SNL. Elephant Parts featuring cutting-edge music videos of Nesmith tunes like Cruisin, Tonight and his hit Rio, along with hilarious looks at the pirate alphabet, clandestine typing services, Elvis drugs ("The fun way for adults to get the drugs they need!"), vegetarian big-game hunters, the courteous and helpful folks at NNS (Neighborhood Nuclear Superiority), stoner game shows, abject poverty, dangerous lounge singers and much more. Directed by William Dear (Harry and the Hendersons, Timerider), this pioneering and Grammy-winning combination of music and madness is now presented fully re-mastered.
