Video: Respect DC Socks It To WalMart Aretha Franklin Style

New, 3 comments

When in doubt, start a flash mob. At least that's what Respect DC does when they want Walmart to pay attention. Last week they flashmobbed a Laurel, MD store with a cheerful rendition of Aretha Franklin's Respect, with a few important lyric changes: Your promises, sweeter than honey/ so follow through/ if you want our money. The store manager in the foreground? He was not amused. Click through for the video and make sure to watch to the end to catch the look on the Walmart greeter's face as the flashmob exits the scene. He was more amused than the manager.
