DOWNTOWN — These doctors pity the fool who won't get a flu shot this fall. 

Physicians and staff at Northwestern Children's Practice, 680 N. Lake Shore Drive, are at it again, producing an '80s-tastic promo video for the flu shots they're injecting this fall.

The medical practice has made waves in the past for its lighthearted promo videos based on "Hamilton" and "Game of Thrones." 

Now it's getting nostalgic with homages to the early days of MTV, "Say Anything" and Hulk Hogan.

Dr. Scott Goldstein, a pediatrician and partner of the practice, even wore a leotard on camera.

"That was definitely my first, and probably my last [time] if my family's reaction has any say in it," Goldstein said. "My 13-year-old was saying 'I'm not letting anybody at school see this.'"

The practice will administer flu shots until supplies run out. 

"There's no 'too early' to get them," Goldstein said. 

If you need extra convincing, watch the video above.
