Were I the producer of a nighttime variety show, I'd try to work clips from Raphael's Escándalo video into the show as often as possible, especially the bizarre hand-punching dance he employs throughout the video. (Check the sequence beginning at around 0:30 for an example.) It's odd how much the motion resembles Kiddo's coffin-busting kung fu skills in Kill Bill 2. Raphael also deserves kudos for the simultaneously maniacal and non-threatening look he wears for most of the video (I think Jim Haslett copied his facial expression). All in all, a brilliant piece of art.
