VCR Of The Day: Michael Bolton Raps Scarface, “No Tears,” in Office Space

Hilarious opening scene from Office Space. Michael Bolton, played by David Herman, stuck in morning traffic raps along to Scarface.

Office Space was released February 19, 1999, in the middle of an emerging rap rise in a city near the hook of Texas, Houston. Mike Judge, the Austin-native director, was initially unsupported by 20th Century Fox Filmed Co. “Fox did not like the  gangsta rap music used in the film until a focus group approved of it.” Or maybe the fact that the filmed  grossed 4.7 million opening weekend from just being released in 1,700 theaters? Ultimately, released everywhere in the U.S gathering a cool 10 million. Culture Shock.
