City Slang: New Mayer Hawthorne video

Posted By on Thu, Aug 4, 2011 at 4:05 PM

Mayer Hawthorne has pieced together clips from ‘80s local public access TV show The New Dance Show to create the new video for his “A Long Time” single, and it’s frankly hilarious.

From the awesome wardrobe choices and dance moves to the blue neon in the background, the footage really is quite a find. The song is great too. Be sure to keep watching after the songs ends to see an awesome old commercial for Colonial Merchandise Mart.

Watch the video here.
