Cat Power, Giovanni Ribisi and Filipino boxer/politician Manny Pacquiao are strange bedfellows with a common cause -- the Festival of Children Foundation and The Ali Forney Center. The trio joined forces for a song/video to benefit the charities for children and LGBT youth -- you can download the track at Cat Power's website, and donate your chosen amount. The 1996 song "King Rides By" is redone here and set to a video of Pacquiao punching a speed bag, directed by Ribisi. The new "King Rides By" is nearly unrecognizable from the original, and we daresay, we like it more.
Check out the video for the new "King Rides By," and listen to the original version below:
