Pee-wee’s big Sturgis biker adventure

Pee-wee Best Associated Press story of the day: Pee-wee Herman (a/k/a actor-comedian Paul Reubens) has trekked to the annual motorcycle rally at Sturgis, S.D., to recreate his famous biker-bar dance in the 1985 feature “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure.”

The annual Sturgis event seeks to project a somewhat different image for hog aficionados than the one promulgated by director Tim Burton in Pee-wee’s feature debut. In that picture, as you recall, Reubens’ geeky titular hero has to mellow out a saloon full of truculent Harley riders with a high-heeled dance to the Champs’ 1958 instro hit “Tequila.” You can view the clip below; it is one of the unforgettable musical sequences in movie history.

According to the AP, Herman/Reubens is sharing a stage at the event with Bob Dylan. Buffalo Chip campground owner Rod
Woodruff is quoted, deliciously:
“Bob Dylan is here because people like him
and Pee-wee is here for the same reason. They are both American icons.”
