From the comedy film Pootie Tang (2001). In an odd spin-off from HBO's comedy television series The Chris Rock Show, the character of Pootie Tang (Lance Crouther) is given his own movie. Pootie is so dang cool he speaks his own bizarre patois that no one can fathom.

Despite, or perhaps because of this, he is a towering figure in the entertainment world: actor, singer, and hero to ghetto children everywhere. In one inspired bizarre sequence, he cuts a new track that is pure silence which becomes a big hit. A loose parody of blaxploitation flicks, the movie is silly fun, but a bit thin in places.

Played by Louis Crouther. The film was written and directed by now hip hot comic Louie C.K.
