Jem and the Holograms will be released later this year, and if the first trailer is any indication of what will follow, the movie will be missing a lot.

Where are the Misfits? Synergy? Can we at least get a hologram of Jem?

After spending 13 years in hiding the Hamburglar has come out of hiding. However, the masked bandit’s appearance has changed quite a bit since we last saw him in 2002.

The youthful, round-faced, single-toothed thief has been updated as a svelte stud who appears to be a 6-foot-something suburban dad with some serious stubble.

Check out the teaser videos McDonald’s released on Twitter.

As half of 80’s duo, Hall & Oats, John Oats scored 34 top 40 hits, including six number one songs. The group was even inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2003 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April 2014.

Those honors may pale in comparison to Oats induction announced last month, as he joined the inaugural class of the Mustache Hall of Fame.

The mustachioed icon joins fellow inductees Dr. Martin Luther King, Teddy Roosevelt, Salvador Dali and other 80’s whisker wearers, Tom Selleck, Lionel Richie and Hulk Hogan.

The Mustache Hall of Fame was recently established by the American Mustache Institute and Wahl Trimmers and hopes to “canonize the superior attractiveness” of sporting facial hair.

Unfortunately, nothing lasts forever. Oates removed his trademark ‘stache back in the 1990s. He now sports a goatee. “The mustache represented the old John,” he said last year. “I didn’t want to be that guy anymore, so I shaved it off. It was ritualistic in a way.”
