    John Cougar Mellencamp "Jack & Diane" Movie Camera. After getting of to a rough start as "Johnny Cougar" in the late '70s, John Cougar Mellencamp rocketed to success in 1982 with the LP American Fool, primarily on the strength of the singes "Hurts So Good" and "Jack & Diane." This GAF XL251 AutoZoom handheld 8mm movie camera was used to shoot footage of Mellencamp and his wife featured in the "Jack & Diane" video, which ultimately helped turn the song into Mellencamp's biggest hit single. Also included is a COA signed by Mellencamp and 15 photos of him performing live and appearing in an Oktoberfest parade in his hometown of Seymour, Indiana, during his "Johnny Cougar" period. The camera is in Very Fine condition with mild to moderate wear to the body and a missing battery compartment cover.
