It’s Mr. T’s birthday, and if you thought that I was going to let today pass without posting some awesome Mr. T footage, then you’re sorely mistaken! Besides playing B.A. Baracus in the classic A-Team TV series and Clubber Lang in Rocky III, Mr. T also tried his hand at making a motivational/public service video called Be Somebody…or Be Somebody’s Fool! The video tackles topics such as shyness, anger, peer pressure and treating your mother with respect, and to be fair, the messages that the video sends are good ones. But it’s tough to take Mr. T seriously when he’s doing things like telling his own version of Romeo and Juliet or encouraging lazy kids at a bus stop to use a boom box as a free weight and balance a bag of popcorn on their heads.
Thanks to Youtube, the entire video of Be Somebody…or Be Somebody’s Fool! is available online for our viewing pleasure! “Everybody’s gotta wear clothes. If you don’t, youre gonna be arrested!”
Look under the cut for the rest!
