Pee-Wee and Robocop

My friend Stephen sent me this trippy clip from the 1989 Academy Award ceremony. In this clip, Pee-Wee Herman arrives on stage to present an award. Suddenly, he receives word that a rogue robot is threatening the building where the award ceremony is being held. Just then, Robocop villain ED-209 arrives on stage. Next thing you know, Pee-Wee goes flying and it’s up to Robocop to save the day. Listen for the awed response of the crowd in this clip, it’s pretty great. Although I think the best part of this whole clip is imagining what some of the older Hollywood crowd in the audience was thinking when this all occurred.
