I remember Milton Berle being in the video for Ratts's Round and Round back in the day. Just wondering about others, Chevy Chase in you can Call Me Al also rings a bell. I know there were tons of others I just can't recall right now.

I apologize upfront for who is presenting this old Top Of The Pops video as no one wants to be reminded of him but this can't be helped but here's a video of the song Nobody's Fool by Haircut 100 featuring a young Patsy Kensit.

https://youtu.be/VdibfHZ3zwA - Top Of The Pops video clip featuring the Haircut 100 song - Nobody's Fool.
