(Newser) – Crimped hair is back thanks to Paul Rudd. He's the eyepatch-sporting cherry on top of Jimmy Fallon's music video remake of Dead or Alive's "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)," which aired Thursday on the Tonight Show. Rudd hides behind crimped hair, heavy makeup, and billowing fabric to become the spitting image of lead singer Pete Burns, while Fallon dons a curly wig to pose as drummer Steve Coy. "The hair. The eyepatch. The dancing. It's all there, and boy, it's glorious," per Mashable. Rolling Stone calls it a "shot-for-shot remake," though you can compare for yourself here. The pair previously remade music videos for Styx's "Too Much Time On My Hands" and Go West's "King of Wishful Thinking." (Fallon has also spoofed Beto O'Rourke.)
