The Weekly Links: 'Bachelor Party' Sitcom, Spaceballs Interstellar Mashup, Why 1984 Had The Best Music Ever

Welcome to another edition of The Weekly Links, your weekly source for the best '80s content on the web! If you visited RD80s this week, you probably saw the rad Atari 2600 box art I found that could have doubled as horror movie posters. Really miss that original art we used to get on boxes for our toys, video games, and even lunch boxes. I also shared earlier this week the Saving Ferris documentary that chronicles the filming locations throughout Chicago. Really love then-and-now shots and this film is full of them. Also, congrats to our friends over at Pop Rewind on their new podcast! I will definitely be listening.

There were a couple videos battling out for the coveted title of Video of the Week (eh, who am I kiddin', I just flipped a coin.) The video left standing that UPROXX brought to my attention features a bunch of today's teenagers reacting to '80s fashion. It's a little over-the-top but was still fun to anticipate what they were going to show them. We all could use a little more neon in our wardrobes, right?
