Because it’s the ‘80s and he’s a teenager and HE WOULD SO IDENTIFY WITH THAT SONG*, OH MY GOODNESS, and the red jacket with pointy shoulders TOTALLY ALSO RESEMBLES HIS OFFICIAL COMIC COSTUME. IT JUST WORKS SO WELL. GENIUS.
Okay so I’m getting a little hyped now.
*(I mean, these lines especially: “They’re out to get you; there’s demons closing in on every side They will possess you unless you change the number on your dial Now is the time for you and I to cuddle close together All through the night I’ll save you from the terrors on the screen I’ll make you see That it’s a thriller, thriller night ‘Cause I can thrill you more than any ghost would ever dare try Girl, this is thriller, thriller night So let me hold you tight and share a killer, diller Chiller Thriller here tonight“)
boss in an interview:so tell me a little about yourself.
me:I'm looking for a job. In fact,I've made up my mind to find a career that I can learn and grow into. Who am I? I'm a hard-worker. I set high goals and I've been told that I'm persistent. Now I'm not fooling myself, sir. Having been raised with the self-esteem movement so popular in schools, I used to expect my needs to be considered. But I know that today's work culture no longer caters to the job loyalty that could be promised to earlier generations. What I believe, Sir, is that good things come to those who work their asses off, and that people such as yourself who reach the top of the mountain didn't just fall there. My motto is if you want to win the lottery you have to make the money to buy a ticket.
