Our Celebrity Crushes Wearing Lisa Frank
1:24 pm, August 5th | by Colette McIntyre
Recently I was doing what your average twentysomething lady does and re-watching D2: The Mighty Ducks while getting ready for a housewarming party. After Jan’s message-mongering speech to Gordon Bombay about HOCKEY and LOVE and AMERICA made me cry (which was the completely normal reaction of an emotionally-balanced human being — NO HORMONES TO SEE HERE, FOLKS), I came to a rather disturbing realization: I was beginning to crush on Fulton Reed and Dean Portman, a.k.a. the “Bash Brothers,” a.k.a fictional characters in a Disney movie who are no older than seventeen. Confused, distraught, and definitely not seventeen, I shut off the television, thought long and hard about my life and my choices, and split a bottle of wine with my shame.
Such is the danger of diving into the winking pools of nostalgia: the Tiger Beat dreamboats of your past are now the Chris Hansen conversations of your present. Luckily there is a Tumblr that combines the Internet’s love for the ’90s with the Lady Internet’s love for hunky slabs of Grade A man meat safely and without moral complications. Funky Fresh in Lisa Frank‘s mission is as simple as it is brilliant: take sexy pictures of sexy (of age!) men and photoshop them so that the men appear to be wearing the wonderful, glitter-soaked creations of Lisa Frank. (Straight) Ladies, start your estrogens!
I can’t fully articulate how amazing it is to see cutie patooties like Paul Rudd and Bradley Cooper decked out in the multicolored, frenetically gleeful unicorns and dolphins of my grade school folders. (Or some acid-tinged fever dream. Whichever.) With Aaron Paul’s biceps and Jeff Goldblum’s Jeff Goldblums on its side, the world of Lisa Frank is now truly fantastic.
Thanks to Funky Fresh in Lisa Frank, I can now have my nostalgia and tear it out, tape it above my bed, and smooch it too. Now please excuse me as I daydream about being the bear holding a guitar made out of a shooting star and a rainbow on Idris Elba’s chest…
