The Establishment Shuffle

In 1985, the Chicago Bears released a novelty song and video, "The Super Bowl Shuffle," which featured the team's stars singing a rather lame rap tune, most of them struggling to find anything close to the melody. But it became a hit and got lots of airplay.

Last weekend, "Saturday Night Live" produced -- but didn't air -- this updated version, which features Republican leaders (instead of NFLers) doing "The Establishment Shuffle." It's well done, but I'm guessing the reason it didn't make the final show is that SNL's target demo wouldn't know the three-decade-old reference...
