Kid of the 80s

In 1984, Mr. T was everywhere. He even made a motivational video, Be Somebody… or Be Somebody’s Fool!.

In the hour-long video, Mr. T he teaches kids how to understand and appreciate their origins, how to dress fashionably without buying designer labels, how to make tripping look like breakdancing, how to control anger, and how to deal with peer pressure.

The pièce de résistance for many in the video is when Mr. T sings (yes, sings) “Treat Your Mother Right (Treat Her Right),” in which he tells the reasons why it is important to treat your mother right.

Kid of the 80s

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.”
