Skrillex vs Nu Shooz: I Can't Bang

If you were watching any MTV in the mid-1980s, you definitely saw the music video for Nu Shooz's "I Can't Wait." With stop-animated doodads, geometric mumbo jumbo flying around everywhere and a dog wearing sunglasses, it is quite possibly the most 80s-looking PV in existence, married to one of the most 80s-sounding songs ever recorded. Short of splicing in footage of Reagan and Gorbachev playing Laser Tag while taking the Pepsi Challenge, I don't see how the video could possibly get any 80s-er.

I mashed "I Can't Wait" by Nu Shooz (1985) up with "Bangarang" by Skrillex (2011). An obvious combination.
