Hugh Hefner may be getting on in years, but that doesn’t mean he’s ill-informed about pop culture. The Playboy founder chose an infamous recent MTV moment to channel into a Halloween costume, and his wife, Crystal Harris, got into the act as well.
Hefner, who rarely gets out of his silk pajamas, chose a black-and-white striped pair and coupled it with a golden microphone to emulate Robin Thicke, while Harris rocked a super short nude dress, mini buns, and a foam finger. The duo made a very interesting Robin and Miley, to say the least.
Cyrus has spoken a few times about the infamous performance, saying she knew it was a little outrageous but didn’t think it would blow up the way it did.
“I don’t pay attention to the negative because I’ve seen this play out so many times,” she said. “You’re thinking about it more than I thought about it when I did it. Like, I didn’t even think about it ’cause that’s just me…How many times have we seen this play out in pop music? Madonna’s done it, Britney’s done it. Every VMA performance… anyone that performs, that’s what you’re looking for. You’re wanting to make history.”
