Milli Vanilli

Try to imagine this machine-tooled duo making any kind of a success of themselves before the video era. Never happen. That's because if you take away their striking looks and choreography, there'd be nothing left of them but their silly Vanilli name and a drum machine, nattering on soullessly. Who cares if you can dance to their stuff—it's still vacuous, narcissistic twaddle.
