Great job, Internet! Vintage Michael Stipe, all dressed up for Rocky Horror

We sit in front of our computers most of the day, connected to our friends and co-workers by the series of pipes, strings, and nimbostratus zackets called the Internet. Many times per day, things flash before our eyes—videos, photos, songs, sites—that are funny or strange enough to warrant sharing with other people. We salute them with a hearty "Great job, Internet!"

Full credit to Pop Candy, which posted this video earlier today after getting a tip from a reader. What you're about to see is a local news broadcast about the controversial fans of the controversial horror-musical The Rocky Horror Picture Show. At about the 1:25 mark, you'll see R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe, in full Frank-N-Furter regalia, talking about the movie. I'm guessing this is 1978 or so…  Enjoy!
