Wig malfunction: '70s TV star adjusts his toupee on camera

In the late 1970s Erik Estrada shot to fame on the hit cop show CHiPs. More than 30 years later he's back in the spotlight for waggling his wig. Sexy!

Former sex symbol Erik was chatting en Espanol to a TV presenter at the 2011 Latin Grammy Awards when she asked him about how he prepared for the ceremony.

The 62-year-old joked that he'd changed his hair colour — then adjusted his hairpiece on camera, shocking the presenter.

"I do it to scare people," said Estrada with a laugh.

Oh well. At least he's honest about his hair loss — and his fake 'do doesn't look as weird as fellow baldie Jason Alexander's.
