There’s like a crotch hole or something….

The video was shot in Medora, Indiana, if that helps…

Those are called chaps. They were all the rage with 80’s pop stars. David Lee Roth (of Van Halen fame) was fond of wearing them without pants.

Hopefully he at least had a jock on. I don’t think I would have been cheering and all with him standing there with all his junk out.

I googled ‘David Lee Roth chaps’ images, and among many others I found this… now I need eye bleach.

David Lee Roth ONLY looks good from the back.
