Blurring Pains: Alan Thicke Replaces Son Robin Thicke In 'Blurred Lines' / 'Growing Pains' Mashup

Posted: Updated:

Oh, how we laughed when word leaked last week that Robin Thicke's father Alan Thicke, of 'Growing Pains' fame, had a co-write credit on "Ain't No Hat 4 That" for Robin's upcoming 'Blurred Lines' album.

Except, of course, that Robin comes by his musical talents naturally. Yep, Alan Thicke is more than sitcom family man, he's also a sitcom songwriter, having penned the beloved themes to"Diff'rent Strokes," which he also sang, and "Facts of Life," which his wife, Robin's mother, sang. (He wrote the 'Wheel of Fortune' theme, too.

That said, he did not sing the theme to 'Growing Pains,' which does not make this Thicke mashup any less awesome as Dr. Jason Seaver is inserted into his real-life son's controversial NSFW music video while the '80s sitcom song fires off our nostalgia synapses.
