This is a 1987 Sky Channel U.K commercial for WWF “Superstars Of Wrestling” featuring The Miami Sound Machine song “Bad Boy” which was a big hit at the time.
I want you to really pay attention to the lyrics of the song- especially the verses.
Now ask yourself is this was really the most appropriate choice of songs?
I mean, I know Gloria Estefan and The Miami Sound Machine were really big at the time, but the song is all about how “Bad Boys” turn the woman on!
So yes, men like Hillbilly Jim and King Kong Bundy get the woman all excited!
Maybe Hillbilly Jim’s secret ability to turn women on lies in his hat? His dog-wrestling abilities? His skills in Moonshine refinery? I don’t know…
I think what happened here is that somebody in the WWF Marketing Department listened to the catchy melody, and the lyrics of the chorus and didn’t pay much attention to the verses (or they thought nobody else would).
The Miami Sound Machine’s music might be a bit dated, but you can’t deny that the song is really catchy, so I guess it isn’t such a bad choice after all.
