It features Food Network's own Marc Summers--a gameshow icon after hosting Nickelodeon's Double Dare, What Would You Do?, and others--as well as some well-known (to me, at least) Nickelodeon stars of the past: Danny Cooksey, "Budnick" from Salute Your Shorts; Michael Maronna, "Pete" from The Adventures of Pete & Pete; and Jason Zimbler, Ferguson from Clarissa Explains It All.
If late 80s/early 90s Nickelodeon wasn't a big part of your adolescence, then this video might be meaningless. It's still fun to see Marc Summers, who's apparently been successful in battling his highly public battle with O.C.D., slime a whole room of kids.
Perhaps I wouldn't have been as nervous meeting Marc Summers if he'd have just poured some green slime on me?
Anyhow, this video is making me think of my own former Nickelodeon star wishlist, if I were to ever shoot a rock video. I think I'd go with:
- "Alastair" from You Can't Do That on Television
- Crystal Lewis from Roundhouse
- Christine Taylor from Hey Dude!
- and anyone from that freaky show Pinwheel
