Flashback Friday: Grease, Britney Spears, and The Halls of Venice Beach High
    • FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2015

    • Posted by: K. Hess

    This week's Flashback Friday is a past/present mash up. Sweedish DJ and producer Alesso dropped the video for his happy house single "Cool," and it's a stroll down memory hallway to homeroom. The video was shot in Venice Beach High School a.k.a. Rydell High a.k.a. the hallways where we first met the pig tail braids of sixteen year old Britney Spears. Clearly this administration has it's hand full. "Cool" unintentionally nails it as the perfect lead in to VBH's best moments.

    As if Eugene, the caricature of a nerd from Grease, was injected with the coy excitement of Britney. Alesso, sweater vest and all, explodes into that famous hallway and spends 4 minutes dancing through the motions of some hilariously excited unrequited love. Think Eugene pining for Patty Simcox, plus a very impressive Britney flavored finale... and what I really mean is that the nerd comes off and the seduction comes a rolling in. Depending on which order you relate these hallways get out your T-Bird leather, your pink silk, your letter sweater, or your crop top and pig tails...
