Friday Night Videos

Pat Benatar's "Sex As A Weapon" was a top 20 hit for her back in the day, but oddly, she left it off her greatest hits compilation. The song's pretty in-you-face for the time, but really, the video goes so far beyond the song it has to be seen to be believed. Yes, there's some valid social commentary at work here, but the whole thing is such a gonzo exercise of 80s excess that it stumbles drunkenly into exploitation territory, albeit in an entertaining, hilarious way. Enjoy.

Previously on Friday Night Videos... Janis Joplin.
