There was only one video that sizzled September 2003, and that was Fountains of Wayne’s “Stacy’s Mom.” The power pop one-hit wonder could be credited to the titular star of the vid, Stacy’s mom herself.
Whether you’re feeling nostalgic or still very much in love with the song, you may be wondering where is Stacy’s mom now? Is she still getting massages by the pool and stirring the fantasies of suburban tweens? Hardly.
Watch the video below to see what Stacy’s mom, model and actress Rachel Hunter, is up to today.
Of course the vintage music video still remains an immortal classic. In it, a gangly barely pubescent boy fawns over his classmate’s leggy mother while ignoring the adorably amateur advances of poor Stacy. There’s a series of scams he tries out to get closer to his crush: lounging in the pool while Stacy wastes her time doing handstands, mowing the lawn and crashing into a bird house, watching music videos on the couch but really keeping a side-eye on Stacy’s mom’s cleavage. He’s so distracted he ends up in a series of mishaps that culminates in a Fast Times at Ridgemont High moment that’s still deeply cringeworthy. Ah, the passion of youth.
But there’s no denying that Hunter, a former supermodel who has graced the cover of Sports Illustrated‘s Swimsuit Issue twice, really brought her A-game in her red string bikini. And after all these years it looks as though she’s still making a show of being painfully beautiful.
Stacy must be seething with rage. We guess the only question left is, what ever happened to Fountains of Wayne?
