Hot Gossip, silver jumpsuits, and the Legion

Continuing our theme of bizarre costumes today, if you thought Dawnstar wearing Dior was odd, check this out. Bearzbub was right:

Hot Gossip + blondie tune + silver outfits from the future + legion of super-heroes comic book = my mind blown

Here's a Youtube video of an 80s group called Hot Gossip. Think of your worst early 80s comic book costumes and think how they'd look on real people (kind of like old Legion transsuits, actually). Then think of them dancing to a Blondie song in a subway. And amidst all that, Bob Geldof is holding a Legion comic.

Click on the picture to watch the video.

He's not holding "a" Legion comic. He's holding "THE" Legion comic.

Yay BOB!

With three, count 'em, three closeups on that Legion cover.

To paraphrase Ian Fleming:

Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, but three times is ... well, not necessarily enemy action, but certainly a FAN! {g}

You know, partway through the video, I realized that's what Dream Girl would have looked like, with her silver spandex one-piece and her feathered white hair.
