When Farnham and The D-Gen pairing ‘seemed like a good idea at the time’

2018 marks 25 years since the Australian King of Pop John Farnham released the studio album Then Again…

“Big whoop!” I hear you say – but what makes this album special, is mainly a single from the album Seemed Like A Good Idea (At The Time), which reached number 16 on the ARIA Charts.

“What’s your point?” You also are probably yelling – what makes this song so special, is that the video clip features the 1993 cast of The D-Generation, creating schenanigans for Farnham when he asks them for music video advice.

Cue in Santo Cilauro and his grandfather Nonno telling him to have a piano accordion, Tom Gleisner promoting the usage of a smoke machine, Jason Stephens flogging false moustaches, Tony Martin and Mick Molloy going all ‘Billy Ray Cyrus’, Molloy separately trying to squeeze in monster trucks, Jane Kennedy suggesting gratuitious violence, Rob Sitch’s obsession with the Lambada, and Judith Lucy caring for the make-up.

You can purchase the video through iTunes here.

Dovetail: Not to forget, Farnham did help out with a Commercial Crimestoppers segment too:
