Culture clashing

This is what you got in the 60's when that strange music called rock and roll was infiltrating the scene and television had little idea what to make of it. Here is the Vanilla Fudge doing their biggest hit, "You Keep Me Hanging On", on a TV show hosted by Ray Anthony, a big band trumpeter whose own biggest hit had been a version of the "Dragnet" theme back in the 50's. Anthony is game in his introduction but he sounds like he has no idea what to make of this band. The slow motion go-go dancers also make a nice production touch.
