What It’s About: Folk hero musician actor Pootie Tang (Lance Crouther) fights Corporate America, who want him to endorse addictive products.
Why Watch it Today?: The character Pootie Tang first appeared on The Chris Rock Show on this date in 1997. The film based on the character is a very odd, occasionally hilarious folk tale spoof of Blaxploitation tropes and pop culture in general.
