I’ve loved the marketing campaign behind 80s wannabe movie, Take Me Home Tonight. They’ve done a fantastic job at parodying what we all know and love from the 80s. Below I’ve placed a new TV spot from the movie along with the music video from it. Have a watch of the music video and see how many 80s movies you can spot that they parody in it. It really is fantastic. Add the ones you spot in the comments section below.
Take Me Home Tonight which is directed by Michael Dowse and stars Anna Faris, Topher Grace, Teresa Palmer, Michael Biehn and Michelle Trachtenberg.
Synopsis: As the summer of 1988 winds down, three friends on the verge of adulthood attend an out-of-control party in celebration of their last night of unbridled youth. Starring Topher Grace, Anna Faris, Dan Fogler and Teresa Palmer, Take Me Home Tonight is a raunchy, romantic and ultimately touching blast from the past set to an awesome soundtrack of timeless rock and hip-hop hits. Recent MIT grad Matt Franklin (Topher Grace) should be working for a Fortune 500 company and starting his upward climb to full-fledged yuppie-hood. Instead, the directionless 23-year-old confounds family and friends by taking a part-time job behind the counter of a video store at the Sherman Oaks Galleria. But Matt’s silent protest against maturity comes to a screeching halt once his unrequited high school crush, Tori Frederking (Teresa Palmer), walks into the store. When she invites him to an epic, end-of-summer party, Matt thinks he finally might have a chance with the girl of his dreams. With his cynical twin sister Wendy (Anna Faris) and best friend Barry (Dan Fogler), Matt embarks on a once-in-a-lifetime evening. From stealing a car to a marriage proposal to an indescribable, no-holds-barred dance-off, these friends share experiences that will change the course of their lives on one unforgettable night in the Go-Go ’80s.
