Shuggie Otis' "Bootie Cooler" Is the Music Video of the Day

 

Happy birthday to funkmaster general Shuggie Otis, who turns 58 today! For those not in the know, Otis is the reclusive genius who recorded the classic LP Inspiration Information, which was virtually ignored upon its release in 1974, but amassed a massive cult following over the years and was re-released by David Byrne's Luaka Bop label in 2001. 

The video above is for Shuggie's instrumental track "Bootie Cooler," and is a montage of dancers on Soul Train. Can we please dress and dance like this again? Also, check out the dude's leg-kick at 2:13. Dance moves that badass should come with a warning label.
