The 80s hair metal scene was a weird time man. Nick Kroll is aware of this and put together a perfect spoof of it on this week’s episode of Kroll Show
. The setup for the sketch is Kroll portraying Nash Rickey (who looks like the ungodly offspring of Bret Michaels and Vince Neil), the lead singer of 80s metal band Sloppy Secondz who had a hit with their song, “L.A. Deli” in the 80s. The sketch picks up in modern day and Rickey is trying to re-unite Sloppy Secondz. Throughout the sketch they keep cutting back to portions of this video. Well, the comedy and hair metal gods collaborated and finally released the entire music video/song for “L.A. Deli” and it’s pretty glorious. You should watch it more than once. In fact, you should do nothing else today but watch the music video.
Here’s a scene from Kroll show where Rickey finds the Secondz’ drummer Spit DeCreaux, played by Jason Mantzoukas.
The song is catchy so here’s a soundcloud stream to listen to when you’ve had enough of the video.
