Recently I embarked on one of my regular jaunts around YouTube, just randomly going where the recommended videos section takes me, as I am want to do at 2 am when the insomnia strikes. It was in my perusal of those recommendations that I got back in touch with an old friend from days long past. Remember this one?
It might be difficult for all my Gen-X cohorts to comprehend, but that video turns 20 years old next year. Hard to believe that the start of my love affair with both Liv Tyler and Alicia Silverstone could have aged so far so fast. I seem to find my way back to it every once in a while and it always proves to be one of the best ways to transport me back to 1994. There have been a lot of great videos over the years, but I still think that one is my favorite. Not because it's particularly well made or even all that clever, but for the obvious reason - Liv and Alicia were incredibly hot in it.
It's just one hot moment after another, starting out with Alicia in the schoolgirl outfit, then out of the school girl outfit, proceeding to Liv pumping gas in leather pants, the two of them stripping in the photo booth for the hippie checkout guy, then some not-so-vaguely lesbian overtones at the titty bar complete with Liv on the stripper pole imitating her dad, followed by an all night romp back at the motel and finally a dip in the pond. Best road trip ever? What wouldn't any hormonally supercharged young teen have given to tag along for that? These days I'm closer to the creepy lecher at the gas station, but I don't think I'll ever stop wanting to tag along with those two. Liv and Alicia have since moved on to bigger things, but I'll never be as fond of anything they do as I am of that video. As far as I'm concerned, it was their best work.
Now check out a little period recap of Liv and Alicia's mid 90s hotness below. Good times, good times.
