Goonies: The Musical?

If this video doesn't touch your heart, we're not sure what will.

Mortified Live's houseband in LA, The Mortified After School Orchestra, was recently readying a version of the classic Prince anthem, Baby I'm a Star. So it got us to thinking about other covers of the tune.

And lo and behold, we discovered this buried treasure starring Chunk from The Goonies. What we love most about this clip is how much fun he seems to be having.

For those keeping score, Chunk (aka: Jeff Cohen) did somewhat end up pursuing a career in music. Today, he's a successful entertainment lawyer. And according to the Hollywood Reporter, he's a damn good one. His firm reps lots of big name entertainers including, yep... songwriters, labels and music publishers.

Awesome. We love this clip so much that we'd invite him to see a live show, but we suspect he's a bit too busy these days.
