I started out the day wanting to make an easy Jello recipe, but ended up going down a rabbit hole of 1980’s synth pop.
The recipe is for Jello Yogurt Whips and the rabbit hole is known simply as… Devo. I started singing their song “Whip It” to myself as I whipped up the Jello.
“When a problem comes along, you must whip it. Before the cream sits out too long, you must whip it”
Suddenly, I had to watch the video.
Well. It is even more bananas than I remembered. The band is in pointy hats on a dude ranch, and their front man is whipping the clothes off a lady in an old timey costume. (video below) What does it all mean? And why?! I scoured the Internet, looking for someone to explain it to me.
I learned that the video was based on this old girlie magazine that they found.
Jerry Casale explained,
“There was a feature article on a guy who had been an actor and fell on hard times… He moved with his wife to Arizona, opened a dude ranch and charged people money to come hang out at the ranch. Every day at noon in the corral, for entertainment, he’d whip his wife’s clothes off with a 12-foot bullwhip… We said, ‘OK, that’s the basis for the video.”
So there you go. Simple.
Kind of like this Jello recipe, now that I think about it. You are literally just whipping yogurt up with Jello.
Just make sure to whip it, whip it good.
