Retro Video of the Week: "Borderline" by Madonna

This past Sunday was Madonna's 57th birthday, and it also marked what would have been her 30th anniversary if she had stayed married to Sean Penn.  In honor of this blessed union, here is the video for "Borderline," in which Madonna is hanging out with some sort of Latino break dancing dojo, until a fancy photog come along and steals her away, showing her a glimpse of the jet set lifestyle.  Champagne in oversized glasses.  Marble columns.  The whole shebang.  Predictably, things deteriorate as a result of some overzealous tagging (graffiti, not sex), and she returns to her pool-playing, denim-clad boyfriend.  But for how long?
