The most incredible music video of all time does exist.

Well, at least the most 80’s video of all time…

“There’s a Tear in My Beer” was written and recorded by Hank Williams Sr. in the early 1950’s, but it was never released to the public. A good old-fashioned beer-drinking heartbreak song, Hank Williams Jr. eventually re-recorded and released it in 1989, using his father’s original recording to turn it into a duet.

The song was recorded partially by merging the original audio recording Hank Sr. had done years prior with Hank Jr. and band adding the stripped down original. For the video, they used pretty groundbreaking technology at the time to alter Hank Sr.’s lips from a previous television performance, making it look like he was singing this specific song.

More than just a touching father/son moment, it would go on to receive an ACM and CMA award for Video of the Year. It was so good, in fact, that they would also win a Grammy for Best Country Vocal Collaboration.
