    A Cameo, cameo on the Cameo Thread.

    Modern day poets.


    Yo! Pretty ladies around the world,
    Got a weird thing to show you, so tell all the boys and girls.
    Tell your brother, your sister, and your ma-mma too,
    'Cause we're about to throw down and you'll know just what to do.

    Wave your hands in the air like you don't care.
    Glide by the people as they start to look and stare.
    Do your dance, do your dance, do your dance quick,
    Ma-mma, c'mon baby, tell me what's the word?

    Ah word up!

    Everybody say,
    When you hear the call,
    You've got to get it underway.

    Word up!

    It's the code word,
    No matter where you say it, you'll know that you'll be heard.

    Now all you SUCKER DJ'S who think your fly,
    There's (think) got to be a reason, and we know the reason why.
    You try to PUT ON THOSE AIRS and act REAL COOL,
    But ya got to realize that you're acting like fools.

    Give us MUsic, we can use it, be FREE to dance.{{indiscernible—(my–mit-my-mit)}}
    We don't have the time for psychological romance.
    No romance, no romance, no romance for me,{{indiscernible—(my-mance-my-mit)}}
    Ma-mma, c'mon baby, tell me what's the word?

    Ah word up!

    Everybody say,
    When you hear the call,
    You've got to get it underway.(Oww!)

    Dial 'L' for Low

    Ahhhh--ah-ha (ah hey)(ah whoo)

    (ah whoo whoo)

    Just (what’d you say) c'mon all you people sing:
    W-O-R-D up
    W-O-R-D up (ehhehh ehh)
    W-O-R-D up
    W-O-R-D up (whew)

    No, actually Drysdale made an offhand comment about Greg having great stuff and possibly making the majors one day, and Greg got a swelled head over it.

    Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes in Adventures in Babysitting.
    They appeared as the unnamed band during the house party scene. So is that a cameo or a small role they played?

    Along those lines: Flash Cadillac and the Continental Kids who appeared as the band at the hop in American Graffiti and the immortal Johnny Fish and the Fins on Happy Days!

    Yeah, but didn't he come back on at the end of the episode to tell Greg to "stay in school?"

    Then he encouraged Peter to marry a bisexual model when he's in his 50s.

    Weird Al in "The Naked Gun."

    "Uh, Frank they're not here for you. Weird Al Yankovic is on the plane."

    Wasn't Weird Al in all of the Naked Guns?

    And to me, a cameo is a small role where the casting to the actor or actress is pretty much the point of the role or joke (Mrs. Cleaver speaking jive/Jim Garrison as Earl Warren in JFK, Larry Flynt as a judge in the People vs. Larry Flynt). A small role is a small role, sometimes cast with a bigger name than usual, in order to get the audiences attention that the role is significant.

    Elvis Costello and Burt Bacharach in one of the Austin Powers movies.

    Old school, "Around the World in 80 Days" had a boatload of celebrity cameos. And the end credits of "The List of Adrian Messenger" consisted of a series of celebrities pulling off masks seen in the movie.
