Billy Ray Cyrus for President?
Cyrus got political in a new video with Mashable on a topic that he feels strongly about.
“Hi, I’m singer-songwriter Billy Ray Cyrus and I’m angry,” he says. “Why? Because it’s 2016 and mullets still haven’t made a comeback!”
With an American Flag flowing behind him, he sternly looks in the camera and says, “Folks, it’s time we bring back the mullet.“
Cyrus goes into the impact the mullet had back in the 90s.
“In 1992, if you had a mullet, you could walk into any club in the country and they’d say ‘Hello sir, all of your drinks are on us, and also, can we run our hands through your gorgeous hair?'”
He jokingly explains that he’s gotten out of speeding tickets because of his mullet and that the President called each person with a mullet to get an update on their hair each week.
Cyrus also expresses interest in bringing the “skullet” back as well. The “skullet” is similar to a mullet, but is “balding in the front and English literature professor in the back.” Hulk Hogan was the poster boy for the “skullet”.
He says that he and fellow mullet wearers used to meet once a week to talk shop and comb each other’s mullets. These other guys with mullets include Patrick Swayze, George Clooney, John Stamos, David Hasselhoff, Andre Agassi, Dog the Bounty Hunter, and Def Leopard.
Cyrus knows the way to bring the mullet back and that is to tell people to grow their hair out, but only in the back! He say to tell your barbers, “Preacher in the front, party in the back”.
“We can turn this country around one mullet at a time. That’s my America,” he ends the video.
Cyrus has been sporting a mullet look recently and it might be because of his new TV show, Still The King. On the CMT show, which premieres Sunday, June 12, he plays a 1990s country star turned Elvis impersonator. Make sure you tune in on Sunday and watch the trailer here.
