"'The Secrets of Isis' starred JoAnna Cameron as Andrea Thomas, a high-school science teacher who found an ancient mystical amulet on an archeological dig in Egypt. The amulet belonged to Hatshepsut, an ancient Egyptian Queen, and it gave the wearer the powers of the Egyptian goddess Isis. Whenever Isis was needed, Andrea would reveal the amulet (which she wore as an everyday necklace) and recite an incantation ("O Mighty Isis!"), transforming her into the goddess/superhero." - Wikipedia.

In addition to the song being a rather cool 80’s New Wave style, the special effects are just amazing. And fun.

Why I published a video of Ray Rice beating his fiancée unconscious, and how effective activism actually works.
