Leone Kraus forwarded me a pitch she got from Josie Cotton's PR person. You may remember Cotton from her hit in 1982, "Johnny, Are You Queer?" where she meant "queer" like "gay."

Anyway, looking it up on YouTube this is what showed up, although the production value looks a lot higher than the usual early-80's MTV fare. But that really looks like Josie Cotton herself.

Either way, the actor seems to be doing "nerd" more than "queer." Maybe they hadn't discovered the difference between the two at the time?
