Washington (CNN) -- For all of you waiting to see a 77-year-old Congressman in a skin-tight track suit show off his martial arts skills, here's your chance.

Rep Jim McDermott (D-Washington) posted a video to his Vine account paying tribute to the late martial arts icon Bruce Lee. McDermott is sporting a yellow-and black jump suit, similar to the outfit Lee is famous for wearing in the unfinished 1973 film "The Game of Death," which Lee was filming when he died at the age of 32.

McDermott is promoting a new Bruce Lee exhibit at Seattle's Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience, which opens up this weekend.
