So perhaps you have already seen these clips on Facebook or Youtube, but I hadn't watched them yet.
And considering in 1979 I was a mere 10 years old, I don't have much memory of this having occurred. But seeing it now, it just blows my mind.

I just have this funny feeling that years into the future, people will look back on these events and have a good roll on the floor, laughing at some of the things we did:
