If you like anything about the 80s—the cat glasses, the girl mullets, the computerized “special effects,” the cheerful beats—you will love this video. The mother in the video is Lauper’s real-life mother, and the father is professional wrestling legend “Captain” Lou Albano.
Lauper fans will probably feel this is a crappy rip-off, and everyone should agree this is one of those Miley Cyrus attempts at coming off a little more “bad.” Anthemic? Yes. Awesome? Not really.
Lauper kept up the camp in all her early 80s work—and the fake-auburn hair.
GaGa is as strangely icy as always; as for Lauper, get a load of that Queens accent.
