They don't make 'em like they used to

You know, in all the times I heard 'Cruisin' (Sunset Sam)' by former Monkees member Michael Nesmith in my growing-up years I never saw the video for the song. Now that I've finally seen it, three things strike me:

1) It's a really enjoyable video, and I can see why it was regarded as ground-breaking at the time, because it set the mould for much of what was to follow as MTV gained popularity;

2) I really didn't expect Sunset Sam to look quite like that...; and

3) ...with that in mind, was it really that hard for Lucy and Ramona 'to figure out if he was gay'?
