After watching Rocky III and a few "A-Team" reruns we started wondering "where did Mr. T get all of his chains?"
Apparently Mr. T used to work as a bouncer at a nightclub. People would either lose them or leave the chain behind after a fight.
Mr. T was discharged from the military, and if not for a knee injury he would have been in the NFL. He then took up the job as a bouncer. Slowly he started building up his collection of gold chains, along with his "tough" attitude.
From there him, his "tough" but positive attitude, and gold chains went on to greater things and 80's pop culture.
And now, a real hidden gem. Mr. T's 80's music video "Treat Your Mother Right".
