This is hilarious to any of us who can remember those halcyon days of mooseknuckle and Tiger Beat hair.

You wouldn’t believe how many guyditorials we consider featuring and wind up rejecting. Easily three for every one that appears on the site. Guyditorials are just so damn boring; jeans, t-shirts, one button-down, one polo and maybe a sweater. Add a car, a desert backdrop and a brooding star who touches his face a lot and you’ve just copied about 98 percent of them.
And while, to our eyes, these looks are heinously ugly, we have to say the whole set of pictures brought smiles to our faces. Sometimes, you just have to let the gays put together a good guyditorial in order to make it fun. So feather your hair and break out your high-waisted bell bottoms, guys. According to Out, it’s time once again.
We’ll just sit on the sidelines and laugh, if you don’t mind. We can’t believe we ever wanted to grow up to look just like this (and drive a van with an airbrushed unicorn on the side), but trust us, plenty of the boys of the ’70s thought these looks were the absolute most.
