Malcolm McLaren, promoter of New York Dolls and Sex Pistols, Presents "Double Dutch" (1983). ~ The amazing rope skipping skills of some of New York's greatest "Double Dutch League" troupes, like the Ebonettes, are on display in this video, which is well worth a watch, even if you don't like music.
McLaren was later sued by the promoters and handlers of the Boyoyo Boys, a South African Mbaqanga group, for swiping their own hit song "Puleng." They got paid, but in an out-of-court settlement, so McLaren was able to retain rights to the "Double Dutch" song. Sadly there is no rope skipping in this video.
