Mr. T’s Friday Night Dance Party!


Ya know, since Clubber Lang is the Monster of the Week and all, why not go all the way and make this edition of Freddy's Friday Night Dance Party a special one, by having the one and only, Mr. T bring the beats and rhymes like only he knows how! Many of you have probably seen this, but if you haven’t, it is filled with more gold than an R. Kelly shower. Just when you thought it was okay to tell ma dukes what a hoe she is, Mr. T steps in to let you know that you should Treat your mother right!

This badass entry into the Hip-Hoposphere is taken from the 1984 motivational video, Be Somebody... or Be Somebody's Fool! It was a video meant to teach kids about respect for their elders as well as respect for themselves. Be Somebody…or Be Somebody’s Fool! was actually produced by Topper Carew, who just so happened to be the writer/producer on the cult classic, D.C. Cab – so it’s clear that when T and Carew got together, magic was made by the cock load.

There are so many things that rule about Treat your mother right, starting off with the very first line where the softball player takes a jab at the little kid by saying that he couldn’t be anymore than five. Now that’s just taking things a little too far right there. Still, I think his ear's sticking out rebuttal is what wins the battle for the little kid, but we’ll never know how it could’ve played out due to T interfering with the big girl’s impending mother joke. There are a few things that I have personally taken from this fine video and made a part of my life. First, make sure to give your mom back massages while wearing weight lifting gloves…one day that could lead to still living at home when you’re 45. Also, take the groceries in for her already! She needs to keep her back strong for when she is auditioning your new father already! And lastly, I couldn’t help but notice that Mr. T, circa this video, would have made for a fine addition to the Sleepaway Camp crew of scantly clad males. Mr. T does not approve of this post.


  1. Um, wow. That's all I have to say about that.

    Its Fridizay, time to pawtay!!

  2. I must seek this out and find. Mr. T pity the foo' who don't own his video. This sounds SO wonderfully bad!

  3. POT: Pure magic, right?!

    Now, Pass the Moet, shun!

    Geof: I think the entire things is available on youtube, but it is one that may be worth owning!

  4. It is available on youttube???? One day, I hope to repay you for your wisdom and guidance!


  5. I was looking on you blog to see if you have posted about the new nightmare on elm street 2010. I saw the trailor on youtube and I must say, Im not impressed. But I want to know what do you think?

  6. Geof: Ha ha, you often provide magic for me to ingest, so we'll call it even! It is on youtube, but broken up into 6 parts, which makes it six times as awesome!'s+fool

    Viaggiatrice: I'm not one that is super opposed to remakes like many fans are. I think there are way too many, but the chance that there might be a good one is a chance worth taking for me...if it's not good, I still have the original to watch.

    With that said, I actually am looking forward to the Nightmare remake and I am a huge fan of the original series, even the "lesser" films! I like that Jack Earl Haley is playing Krueger as he is a fantastic choice and I look forward to what he does with the character. I also like some of the visual things I have seen in the trailers (snow always gets me!), but trailers can be so deceiving that you really never know what you're going to get.

    I don't know, I'm an optimist when it comes to remakes and I really hope the new Nightmare is great, but who knows till it comes out I guess. Thanks for the great comment!
