I WANT MY AW-TV!

In 1991, MTV was ten years old, and common wisdom dictated that its vvisual style of bright lights, fast cuts, and hot, young bodies writhing to music wasn't the way of the future -- it was the present.

Another World decided to get in on the action with its notorious LadyKiller video. Dean (Ricky Paull Goldin) and Jenna (Alla Korot) -- who'd already rocked out to Wild August a month earlier -- were a couple in turmoil. He wanted her, she didn't want him. Well, she said she didn't want him, anyway.

Now Jenna is dancing in Dean's music video. He doesn't want her dancing in it. Well, he says he doesn't, anyway.

But the show must go on, and Another World went all out, MTV-style. Watch the finished product on the September 23 episode of AW on Hulu.com, here. Beware the intense make-up, teased hair (it may have been 1991, but the 80s weren't exactly over yet) -- and an explosive finale that wasn't in director Jake McKinnon's (Tom Eplin) original shooting script!

Will the LadyKiller video break more than just hearts? Find out now on Another World!
