"Videos began to attract wannabe Cecil B. DeMilles, who had almost unlimited budgets and did whatever they felt like. ‘Adult Education’ is a perfect example. We brought in a director I didn’t know [Tim Pope], who was newly hot. He didn’t have a clue what to do with the song. The plot? I couldn’t tell you. It’s some sort of primitive de-virginizing ritual. Everybody was dressed in kind of faux primitive war paint, John Oates shook some kind of magical stick, and there was a virgin laying on a table. That’s all I know."

— Daryl Hall on the wonderfully bizarre Hall & Oates video "Adult Education" from our excerpt of Craig Marks and Rob Tannenbaum’s new oral history I Want My MTV.
