Creepy Crawley

It's finally Friday, and the glam mistress is exhausted. Unfortunately, I have a full weekend and lots of work to do, so I won't be getting much rest. When I get tired, I start having loopy thoughts. Last night, I was thinking about RATT and their "Lay It Down" video.

Last week, I purchased Ratt & Roll 8191. It's a greatest hits album and is relatively cheap. One of my favorite RATT tunes is "Lay It Down." Over the weekend, I caught the video on VH1 Classic Metal Mania. Great song, but the creepiest video ever made. A scary looking boy, a young girl painted up like Jon Benet Ramsey and a clown at a birthday party.

Suddenly, the "birthday boy" blows out the candles on his cake and we fastforward 25 years to an adult Stephen Pearcy, singing lead in RATT. Not a bad wish mind you, but now he's following around the adult version of Jon Benet in a very stalker-esque manner.

Maybe it's just me. Watch this video: RATT "Lay It Down" and tell me if you think it's the creepiest video ever produced.

I have "Ratt & Roll 8191", and I have to say, it is a good compilation. I agree with you on the video for "Lay It Down", but it is a good song!
Have a good weekend!

I don't know what's creepier, the clown or Stephen Pearcy's clothes!

Nice to see the late Robin Crosby though.

I think it's just you...the video was obviously what the kid was wishing for...not fast-forwarding to the future.

I will agree, however to the creepiness of the kids AND the grownup JonBenet...hehehe...that kid who plays the young Stephen played in a couple horror movies later, I think.

Who's prettier: Stephen or grown-up JonBenet? HEHEHEHE Gotta love the laughable legacy '80s hair metal left us.
Ok,I have searched the web and came to a dead end. Does ANYONE know the name of the boy in the Lay It Down Video playing little Stephen Pearcy ??

I had the opportunity to meet all members of Ratt,past and present,with the exception of Robin Crosby. They were down to earth,friendly,and took the time to sign autographs and take pictures.Got a Ratt story you want to share?
