with David Spade and Jeremy Piven. Plus it was a fairly popular song, sure its been used in a lot of movies.

And yeah, pretty sure it's in Starsky & Hutch.

Edit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afternoon_Delight

2004: On episode 2.06 of Arrested Development (originally aired 19 December 2004), the show was entitled "Afternoon Delight", and a recurring theme was how each of the characters didn't realize how dirty the song was until they started singing it out loud with a family member
Haha, damn I love that show.

It plays on the car radio in Starsky & Hutch when they are driving together after they have been forced by Will Ferrell to do the whole dragon business. I think.

it's in a lot of movies and usually as some sort of ironic joke. I like that song.

When MAD TV was good, there was a funny sketch with David Herman as a sniper assassin, trying to figure out what song's stuck in his head as he sizes up his shot.

After he does the job, it hits him. "Afternoon Delight!"

skyrockets in flight!

Afternoon Delight!

Some great uses of the song in TV/movies. I did like the aforementioned uses in PCU and in Sports Night.
