Happy Birthday Harry Dean Stanton, here’s Radiohead!

Radiohead, 15 Step Overdub

Harry Dean Stanton is one of those actors who everyone has seen, but no one can ever remember where. So allow us to remind you. He was the put-upon world weary dad in Pretty In PinkRingwald‘s finest moment – he was a repossession agent in Repo Man – Estevez’s finest moment – and he enjoyed Swayze’s finest moment in Red Dawn. He’s certainly been around the block a few times, and today he’s turning a very impressive 82, so we thought we’d buy him a present. After about nine small bottles of French beer, we thought it would be completely hilarious to get him a kitten called Rover, or a brilliant overdubbed Radiohead clip spotted by friend of the site Andrew. In the end we got him both. Happy Birthday HDS!
