Musical Interlude: Anything She Does (1986)

After they went mainstream in the early 80's, Genesis became known not just for their music, which began gravitating toward Top 40 and Adult Contemporary, but also their music videos, which offered some comic moments.

One of these cases is in "Anything She Does", off the "Invisible Touch" CD, from 1986. British actor-comedian Benny Hill resurrected his Fred Scuttle persona as an inept security guard. Anyone that followed Hill's variety show when it was imported to the US a few years earlier would know that Scuttle was dumber than a bag of hammers, anyway. The intro with Scuttle was later used as an entrance video for the band on tour.........
