Skate into Summer with Playboy’s Roller Disco and Pajama Party

There’s no more time-honored way to celebrate summer than roller skating around in a skimpy outfit. With that in mind, let us now turn to a veritable fount of inspiration of the most cheesecakey, wonderfully kitschy (but secretly deserving of academic analysis) kind: Playboy’s Roller Disco & Pajama Party, available to watch in full (complete with original commercials!) on YouTube. That’s right: it’s not just a roller disco. Nor is it just a pajama party. It’s both, and it’s glorious. This 1979 special, hosted by Richard Dawson and featuring The Village People and plenty of delightful celebrity cameos aired on primetime on ABC. Those were the days, right?
