After School Special. Dads Living In Hotels. Sad.

Did your Dad live in a downtown hotel? Mine didn't thank God. Because I did what I was told. But look at this kid from this After School Special. His Dad lived in a downtown hotel.

I wonder what he did that forced his parents to get divorced and live in a downtown hotel.

Probably something terrible. Too bad they probably don't love him anymore.

The Jukes - they are greedy aren't they?

Dominica said...

(blink blink)

I think that the dad might be Beau Bridges (Jeff Bridges brother). I checked IMDb, but it wasn't listed.

Dr Zibbs said...

Some Guy - it is him.

I think 'My Daddy is a Crack Ho' was a better movie--more meaningful message.

Jeannie said...

Damn kids kept trying to split us up too so now we both live in a downtown hotel. Beau Bridges is our neighbor.

Scope said...

Today, the Sfter School Special would be, "My Dad Lives In A Downtown Hotel with Steve's Dad."

Susan said...

OK, my husband remembers watching this special. But his Mom and Dad still live in his home. Thank God he watched it and didn't do what this little kid did.

Cowguy said...

It's okay... Dad's closer to his crack dealer now that he's downtown.

Wings said...

Well... wasn't that depressing. Gotta love the 70s. Although, my life would have been SO MUCH better had my dad moved to a downtown hotel instead of just putting a lock on the door. Just sayin...

Kids: Ruining decent marriages since the beginning of time.

Phil Bennett said...

My favorite one was, "My Dad lives in a van down by the river"...starring Chris Farley. Makes me cry everytime!!

Peggy said...

Seriously, where do you find this stuff??

I loved after-school specials...they were such a treat!

We also used to have the 3:30 movie and they'd show stuff like King Kong...did you guys have that too?

Gwen said...

Can't see the video at work but generally daddies drink and move out because babies cry.

diane said...

I agree with Dominica, cause you know the real reason dad moved out is because he's gay.

Girl Interrupted said...

Never mind his parents divorce ... that kid caused the Vietnam War, Watergate and the general decline of civilisation as we know it! Evil little mofo.

That's a whole different movie though.

Dr Zibbs said...

Peggy - I believe this video was a suggested video I found when searching for something else.

gorillabuns said...

i was wondering if they made an afterschool special, "my dad is crazy and lives in a looney bin?"

sista #2 said...

My favorite After School Special was "My dad fucked a hooker". That poor kid is still in therapy.

peace
