An online campaign to get Detroit mayor David Bing to build a monument to the main character from the movie "RoboCop" in the troubled city has been interesting to watch. Sure, it started as kind of a joke, but the argument on Twitter is that it will bring tourism, and you have to admit it'd be pretty cool.

Now the would-be statue has received its biggest endorsement yet from none other than Peter Weller, the actor who portrayed Alex "RoboCop" Murphy. Watch the video he made for Funny Or Die below, and pretty soon you'll too have some R-E-S-P-E-C-T for the monument idea. Want to make it happen? Check out the Facebook group.
