Toto - Rosanna
Last night we fell down a yacht rock rabbit hole, which ended with watching this video. There’s one thing about Toto that I find truly amazing—they managed to be successful in music, even though they were (as a collective group) fantastically unattractive people. Seriously, these are some ugly motherfuckers. There’s like, one dude in the back who is kind of average-y, but that’s it. If I had been their manager, I probably would not have encouraged them to appear in their music videos, instead of putting them in a cage surrounded by much better looking and more coordinated people, which really just highlights the fact that they are ugly.
In conclusion, it’s nice for them that we once we able to ignore physical appearance and appreciate artists based on talent alone, but holy hell there is no way they could ever make it in today’s music industry.
