Cincinatti — Bootsy Collins is showing off his signature funk in a tribute song to his hometown football team.
Dressed in an orange leather hat, jacket and wide-legged pants, Collins, 54, shot a music video Friday for the Cincinnati Bengals song, "Fear Da Tiger."
The song includes three players, Duane Clemons, Ben Wilkerson and Stacy Andrews, rapping lyrics they wrote.
The video, scheduled to air for the first time during the Bengals' next home game Nov. 20, will feature several players showing off their dance moves with orange tackling dummies.
Collins, who wore the jersey of quarterback Carson Palmer under his leather outfit, has played bass for James Brown and Parliament/Funkadelic. He said he hopes the video will convey a positive image of the city.
"The Bengals are doing their part," he said. "I'm just trying to do mine."
