ZZ Top: The True Idea Men Behind “What Not To Wear”

Aug 27th, 2008 // Comment


Idolator film-music critic Andy Beta places the videos for “Gimme All Your Lovin’,”: “Sharp Dressed Man,” and “Legs” under his critical microscope: “Under such pressure, these blue-collar boys encounter their fairy godfathers, ZZ Top (who appear like a mirage in the Texas Panhandle landscape), via a set of magical car keys with the ZZ logo and ‘The Eliminator’ herself, a customized two-door, cherry-red 1933 Ford coupe. Attended by a triumvirate of hotties decked out in halter tops, fishnets, leather minis, studded belts, and red pumps, these modern-day Fates arrive just in time for the makeovers (seriously, in the intervening decades, how did no one at Spike TV conceive of Skank Eye for the Straight Guy?) and triumph.” Andy, I hope you put a patent on Skank Eye For The Straight Guy right after you file your review, so the good people at Spike pay you the cash you deserve.
