Who can forget "Let's Got to the Mall" and "Sandcastles in the Sand," to name a magic few videos Robin would just as soon forget. This nagging skeleton once again emerges as Barney finds a copy of Space Teens, and this time we make the acquaintance of her co-star Jessica Glitter (played by Pussycat Doll and Dancing With the Stars champ Nicole Scherzinger). Let the good times roll, eh?
