Before PC culture, there was Oingo Boingo

One of Oingo Boingo’s hallmarks is sarcasm, irreverence and social commentary in their lyrics. Lead singer Danny Elfman had a hand in the production/direction of almost all of their videos, and his twisted sense of humor shows here. The lyrics clearly discuss pedophilia, but in the video, he uses “little people” (dwarves and midgets) as a visual pun. One of the male dwarves is Peter Dinklage, who has had a long career in television and movies, including the movies “Elf” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”

Such a video couldn’t be made today, in the current climate of political correctness, enforced by “liberal” mob rule. It’s sad how much human culture has declined due to “progressive values.”
