From US Weekly: Start thinking of a celebrity couple nickname! Alan Thicke, predicts his son, Robin Thicke, and daughter-in-law, Paula Patton, could be the next Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. … “It’s amazing. It’s a rocket ride,” Alan told Us of Robin’s hit song “Blurred Lines.” “I’m thrilled for him. I’ve always dabbled in music. If I could have grown up to be Robin Thicke, I would have. But I’m glad somebody in the family did.” Alan also told Us that he believes the couple’s success will only continue to soar. He shared, “I told [Robin], ‘You’re a power couple now. If you only adopt a few Ethiopian kids, you’d be the next Brangelina.’”

Alan Thicke: What?
Robin Thicke: Dad!
Alan Thicke: What?!
Robin Thicke: Dad, you just can’t say stuff like that out loud to other people! Especially not to people who write for gossip magazines. Come on, dad, you know that, you’ve been in this business for a long time!
Alan Thicke: Oh, what? I can’t say that I’m proud of my son? I can’t say that I’m excited for his success, and for the success of his beautiful wife?
Robin Thicke: Dad.
Alan Thicke: Son.
Robin Thicke: I mean all that “Brangelina” stuff…the part about adopting “a few Ethiopian kids”?
Alan Thicke: Ooooh, excuse me! Paaardoon me! I guess we can’t acknowledge that certain people adopt kids from Ethiopia now?

Robin Thicke: No, dad, c’–
Alan Thicke: I’m sooo sorry. Maybe it’s just that we can’t say ETHIOPIAN now at all. I didn’t know that I couldn’t say ETHIOPIAN now. I didn’t know ETHIOPIAN was a dirty word, Robin.
Robin Thicke: It’s not, dad, it’s just–
Alan Thicke: It’s just that we have to ignore the fact that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie adopted a few kids from Ethiopia? Oooh, we can’t speak of it? They did, you know! That’s what they did!
Robin Thicke: It’s more of the tone of the overall statement. It seemed a little, I don’t know, crass.
Alan Thicke: Oh, you want to talk about crass?
Robin Thicke: Here we go.
Alan Thicke: You really want to talk about crass?
Robin Thicke: No, dad.
Alan Thicke: Because we could talk about a few things that I see as “crass,” if you’d like to.
Robin Thicke: No thanks, dad. I just wish that you’d be a little more careful when talking to the press, especially when you’re talking about me and my family.
Alan Thicke: Oh, come off it, Robin!
Robin Thicke: Dad!
Alan Thicke: The truth is that if you and Paula adopted a bunch of kids from Ethiopia or one of those other flashy poor places–
Robin Thicke: Dad.
Alan Thicke: –You’d be the next Brangelina! Robina. Paulin.
Robin Thicke: Okay, dad. Just, please don’t say that anymore.
Alan Thicke: Please don’t sing your song anymore! How about that? How about I ask that of you?!
Robin Thicke: Dad! You are acting like a crazy person!
Alan Thicke: AM I, ROBIN?
Robin Thicke: YES, DAD!
Alan Thicke: I’m just trying to say that I love you.
Robin Thicke: Okay, dad. Love you, too. Please don’t say that other stuff anymore.
Alan Thicke: No promises.
