A slew of familiar faces appear in a new campaign video for a California state senate candidate remixing Huey Lewis’ “Hip to Be Square.”

Hip-hop artist MC Hammer, former congressman Barney Frank, actor Jaleel White, best known for playing Steve Urkel on ’90s sitcom Family Matters, and football players Joe Montana and Ronnie Lott all feature in the ad.
