Richard Simmons' Hair Style Makes a Statement

"Get something cute, get something girly"

Richard Simmons' new video is camp as they come. The video, inspired by 8bit video games, is like Master Blaster with rainbows meets Mario 2 where you have to play as Cher.

A pixelated Simmons dashes through the levels dodging scissors (that would presumably ruin his do), and grabbing power ups, like mirrors and fro-picks and bouncing from one stage to the next. If you've ever played Mario Kart – think Rainbow Road with a fab mission; “get something cute, get something girly.”

But Simmons' song also touches on a message. “Get something that will get you in trouble” is a great reminder to get out there and be queer and fabulous in everyday life, no reason to hide.
