Like a lot of his fellow classic rockers (Bob Dylan, Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, etc), triumph of modern medicine Lou Reed had a checkered path while traversing the '80s. On the one hand, he produced The Blue Mask and New York, two of his career best albums; on the other hand, this was a period when he released "The Original Wrapper" as a single off the godawful Mistrial. Depending on how you look at it, this 1984 commercial in which Reed shills for Honda Scooters was either a very high or very low point. "Don't settle for walking," he says over glimpses of '80s NYC as "Walk On The Wild Side" hums along.

Then again, this isn't even close to the weirdest thing Reed has been involved in.
