Legendary bad guy actor Danny Trejo dons a sport jacket and 1970s look in the latest Nick Waterhouse video for the single, “Wreck The Rod.”

Waterhouse doesn’t exactly cut a debonair image himself as a velveteen hipster complete with Elvis frames, pot belly and frilly shirt in the DIY-style snippet. “Wreck The Rod” is off his soon-to-be-released self-titled album out March 8. (Innovative Leisure).

The throwback track that reminds viewers of the old “Fernwood Tonight” parody starring Martin Mull, was inspired by a conversation with “Soul Queen of New Orleans” Irma Thomas, Waterhouse said.

Singers are ‘Used Up by Industry’ Waterhouse Says

Nick says his conversation with Thomas concerned “singers being used up by an industry (in addition to a larger swath of society), about riding it out, about rising above, about an unsettling pleasure/pain dynamic.”

In the video, Nick performs as Trejo hosts. He’s a groovin’ throwback “washed up musician” He straps on his velour tuxedo, vintage frames, and white patent leather shoes to glide and groove on stage while embodying a hilarious “washed up musician” persona.
