I have loved Paul Rudd since I saw him play Josh in the 1995 movie ‘Clueless.’ He was dreamy then, and he’s dreamy now. There’s actually a huge internet debate about his age; he just turned 50, but he seriously looks younger now than he did 10 years ago. And I will admit, he’s on my top 5 list of celebrities that I get a “hall pass” for. So any time Paul does something, anything, I’m going to watch it.
Whenever Paul Rudd visits The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the two can’t help themselves when it comes to rocking out on 80s music. Back in 2016, the duo teamed up to recreate Styx’s “Too Much Time On My Hands” music video (which I posted in this blog). Then last year, the Ant-Man star returned with their version of Go West’s “King of Wishful Thinking.” On Thursday, Rudd and Fallon put together a painstakingly perfect, shot-for-shot remake of Dead or Alive’s “You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)”. Everything you remember (and may want to forget) about the decade is there, including the clothes and hair.
I love all of these videos and I love Paul more now than ever… which is hard to do because he was the BEST in ‘Friends,’ which you know is my favorite show. Here’s my favorite clip of him in ‘Friends’ because I’ll always love Crap Bag:
