Eighties nostalgia is hot! America is remembering the good times — Ray-Bans, Rubik’s cubes and MTV with Cyndi Lauper telling us, “Girls just want to have fun!” It has a lot of people thinking it would be fun to go back in time.
Well, now there’s a comedy web series about a guy who DOES go back, if only in his mind! After undergoing hypnosis, a middle-aged man, Hayden Bell, THINKS it’s the 1980s and that he’s still a teenager in the '80s. He becomes known as “That '80s Guy” after going viral on YouTube. It’s up to his erratic brother Brandon Bell to help Hayden get his mind in order as he pursues his old high school love interest.
Our RTM hosts had a chance to Skype with Craig Fones, the writer, producer and lead actor who plays Hayden Bell, and Larry Coulter, who plays Brandon and is also a writer/executive producer on the series. "That '80s Guy" is available on Vimeo on Demand and will also be on Amazon starting Friday, Nov. 23.
