Hey girls, can I ask you something? Totally not trying to be weird, we’re all girls here, but what are you wearing right now? Pajamas? Sweatpants with leggings underneath and your boyfriend’s tanktop? A big bag? A jumpsuit and lipstick all over your face? Jeans on your bottom and jeans on your top with your arms in the legs? A cardboard box space suit with a fishbowl for the helmet? An extra-large Flight of the Concords shirt you got for free in college that you wear around the house sometimes because it’s, like, VERY soft for some reason? Ok, well, I’m sure some of you look lovely no matter WHAT you’re wearing, and it is what’s on the inside that counts for sure, but it’s definitely fun every once in a while to put aside what you think is your style and to try out the latest fashions. “But how do I know what the latest fashions are?” you might be asking. Good question! The truth is you can get a hint of the newest trends almost anywhere! Outside, inside, a Mr. T fashion show from the ’80s I guess that’s for sure kind of jokey but then it’s like, well, but who ever wanted it and why did they decide to make it?, etc. The only thing you have to remember is to open your eyes and trust what you see.

It’s called fashion, ladies! Wear it or you’ll get arrested or whatever! (Via BuzzFeed.)

  1. Mr. T really liked Manny.

  2. Kelly, that outfit is perfect for stoppin’ traffic and startin’…who knows what?

  3. I’m wearing a yellow muscle tee under overall cutoffs, with a tasteful amount of jewelery. I thought I was tabling that label, until I saw Mr. T. Dammit, T, one of us has to change.

  4. I get the feeling that Mr. T was bullied by Gloria Vanderbilt and Bill Blass at some point.

  5. And the universe came to lurching, paradigm-shifting halt, as Mr. T suddenly became the very fool he so often pitied.

  6. So you’re telling me that NOT ONLY was the climactic fashion show at the end of Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead based on this video, but also that Mr. T was Jewish? I think I need to lie down for a second.

  7. Whoa. Hold on. Isn’t Marta that chick that was on Kids Incorporated and also did that Toy Soldiers song? And why can’t I ever remember where I put important things like my car keys yet I remember this?

    • Close. That was Martika:

      • Yes that’s totally her. Looked her up on Wikipedia and she’s Marta “Martika” Marrero. It also said she and other Kid’s Inc. co-stars were featured in the musical numbers from Mr. T’s video “Be Somebody or Be Somebody’s Fool” which is really just a great name for a promotional video. I need to see more of this video! And if I would just look down before I type I would see that twinkles has posted a link to the full video. Now my life is complete!

  8. This is merely a small taste of the full experience “Be Somebody or Be Somebody’s Fool” in which Mr T teaches us all how to avoid drugs, dress well and treat your mother right. The full video is available here: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=4610575102642182602

  9. Did anyone else think this felt like a bad Family Guy cut-away joke?

    Brian: “Well, that was weird.”

    Peter: “Yeah, it’s like that time Mr. T hosted a fashion show!”
