Triplets in Jean Jackets

  Triplets in jean jackets and Levi's. One of the triplets is standing on his tiptoes as to appear as tall as the other two. One of the other triplets has a baby cocooned under his jean jacket. No, they did not coordinate their attire, it just happened that they packed alike.

This was pretty fun to watch (dumb fun in the best way) and I’m surprised I haven’t revisited sooner — it feels like I haven’t seen it in a couple of decades. As I wind down my 1989 movie marathon, this made for good timing, a few days ahead of Christmas.
