Young Hanks and Aykroyd Rap and Dance in Dragnet Video

Thompson on Hollywood

Universal invested serious coin in this 1987 Dragnet MTV music video for the hit hip-hop single City of Crime (which played over the closing credits), starring the rap-and-dance team of Tom Hanks and Dan Aykroyd (below).

It’s damned good: Hanks and Aykroyd performed along with bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes and guitarist Pat Thrall. It’s also clear that the basic music video elements–relatively fresh at the time–are still tried-and-true: singing and dancing, tits and ass.
