Original Song: The Staple Singers "Respect Yourself" (1971)


The video starts out with Bruno tending bar, with a TV in the tavern showing Pop Staples singing in the old days. The owner tells him things are looking dead that night, so they oughta shut down.

But before you know it, our action hero is crooning into a billiard cue, and the joint is mysteriously full again, with real-life soul sisters there to help with the lines about how putting hands over your mouth when you cough can solve air pollution problems.

Okay, it was never exactly the most environmentally enlightened song, to begin with. But the album this version was on got to No. 14, then was reissued on CD by Razor & Tie a decade later. Think of the landfills, people!
