Behold: A Genius Set An Alex P. Keaton Montage To Billy Joel's 'We Didn't Start The Fire'

Man, Tom Hanks really backhanded the kid, didn't he?

What the hell? Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start The Fire" didn't drop until 1990, but it's still quite '80s, so it pairs well with this loving montage of Alex P. Keaton's big moments (and pratfalls, and leapings into other actors' arms).

How'd you find this...whatever this is? Looking for a Family Ties gag reel or supercut.

Who cares? This song was everywhere in 1990, the way Michael J. Fox was everywhere in the '80s, and it hasn't aged well, while Fox's charisma has evolved and endured. The Good Wife overstayed its welcome by a bit, but I'll miss its tertiary characters -- like Louis Canning.
