Throwback Thursday: Sorry Lou, but Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Cyndi Lauper is best known as being a somewhat successful pop singer in the mid-'80s, and that fame through music helped WWE's first boom grow and flourish thanks to her appearances at The War to Settle the Score and WrestleMania. Wrestling bled into her music career as well, as the affable, avuncular Captain Lou Albano made an appearance in her iconic music video for "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun." He plays Lauper's dad in the video, and she even gets the better of him with a hammerlock. Nice form, Cyndi!

This week's selection comes to us from @NielJacoby, whom I still have not forgiven for removing his moustachioed Robocop Twitter avatar.
