I've never been a huge Hall & Oates fan, but that's not why I love this video.  I love it because it's terrible, and because they apparently made it that way on purpose.  Some local TV show in Atlantic City invited them to lip synch this song, but they didn't want to do that.  Instead, they decided to put together this early (1973) "music video".  Daryl Hall doesn't even bother to move his lips half the time, they both look stoned, and they literally act out parts of the lyrics.  The show never aired the clip, but thank goodness for the interwebs.

Trivia:  The woman walking across the screen is Sarah, aka Sarah Smile, and the Devil is played by their road manager.
