More than a decade before the Don't Ask Don't Tell fiasco, the United States Navy bankrolled the filming of this video with the hopes that it would bolster enlistment.
I kid you not.
The date on the video is 1979, so I'm guessing that would be after the infamous Saturday Night Live skit that blew the lid off the all of the homosexual innuendo and double entendres in the Village People's oeuvre.
And that begs the question: was the Navy out of their minds, or were they really and truly hoping that young American homos would rush to enlist? I'm forced to believe it was the latter.
(As we all know, this had no effect on bottoms. Bottoms enlist in the Marines. Always. Without exception. Trust me on that.)
