7 Things Paul Rudd’s hair from his ’80s yearbook looks like (PHOTOS)

Aren’t yearbook photos great?

VIDEO: Does Paul Rudd rule the Jimmy Fallon lip-synch battles?

The magic of the internet bequeathed us with another nugget of amazingness this week. This time, it takes the form of Paul Rudd’s fraternity yearbook photo from the ’80s.

According to BuzzFeed, the pic was taken during Rudd’s time at the University of Kansas and the years have clearly been kind to Rudd. His face has hardly aged a bit, despite his love of partying, and his hair these days is a little more clean-cut, though slightly less radical.

What we wouldn’t give to see the adorable ’80s Rudd walking this equally cute pooch down the street. As Sydney Fife and Rudd’s character in I Love You, Man, Peter Klaven, would say, “They’re total bowsers.”
