If there's one thing that workout guru Richard Simmons is known for — besides his tiny striped Dolfin shorts and boundless energy, of course — it's his bountiful head of Brady-esque curls. So it's fitting that the 65-year-old "Sweatin' to the Oldies" star's newie single mixes fun, fitness, and follicles.

Behold, everyone, the discofied glory that is Richard's just-released music video, "Hair Do":

This isn't Richard's first foray into pop music; in addition to the many CD, VHS, and DVD compilations in his "Sweatin'" series, in 1982 he released the workout album Reach, featuring 10 original songs he co-wrote with pro songsmith Bruce Roberts with titles like "You Can Do It," "Lift It Up," and "What Are You Waiting For?"

But were any of those tracks as motivating as "Hair Do"? And did any of them have videos featuring "RuPaul's Drag Race" contestants? Nope.

What are you waiting for? Let your hair down and jazzercise-dance to Richard's new jam now.
