In a Slack chat today among Atlantic staffers reminiscing about their favorite Nickelodeon shows from ’80s, Jennie wrote:
My fondest memory of my Nickelodeon watching is the time they played the video for “Monster” by Fred Schneider from the B52s. Nick Rocks was supposed to show cute, child-friendly videos (like the Cars video in this commercial). I guess they thought “Monster” was child-friendly because … it featured a dancing, animated penis and women wearing giant plastic naked butts and the refrain, “There’s a monster in my pants and he does a nasty dance”?
