An actress from Van Halen's iconic video for "Hot for Teacher" has recreated the role in a new video. Ruth Silveira, who played the mother in the 1984 video, was recruited to be the mother once again in Joe Hernandez-Kolski and Thing of Twins' video for "This Rap Makes No Sense."
At the start of both videos, Silveira helps get her son Waldo ready to go out. "Now Waldo, I hope you find some friends this year," she says to the boy in "Hot for Teacher." In the new video, the line has been changed to, "Now Waldo, I know you have a lot of friends you want to see, but you have to stay inside just a little longer."
