Firewater Friday - Where's Waldo?

Where's Waldo?  Not that Waldo . . .

This Waldo . . . from Van Halen's "Hot for Teacher"  video.  The song is from Van Halen's album 1984 and was . . . ironically enough . . . released in 1984.

That was my all-time favorite Van Halen album.  The song, Hot for Teacher, and resulting video was pretty sexually suggestive.  So much so that parent groups protested it and demanded it be pulled from store shelves and removed from the airwaves so their precious children wouldn't be corrupted.  Needless to say, that didn't happen.   I'm pretty sure I wasn't overly corrupted by it.  

Although disputed by some, it's believed that Waldo was played by Keith Kessinger.  Waldo grew up to be  a solo artist/multi-instrumentalist/songwriter and is now known for doing a cover of Hot for Teacher playing all of the instruments by himself, note for note.  Very cool.
