Christopher Atkins turns 47 today, and the fact that the tribute montage below has been viewed more than 28,500 times on YouTube gives me reason to believe that I’m not the only one willing to celebrate his contribution to my coming-of-age in the ’80s by ogling him in movies like The Blue Lagoon, The Pirate Movie, and A Night in Heaven. (Just typing that last one, I feel dirty).

I wish I knew how I missed him on Dallas, in a Speedo. Wait… God bless the Internet.
