Tulsa, Okla. —

A fighting gear maker from North Carolina has produced a simple and impassioned plea for support for the family of Tulsa crime victim Bob Strait.

RangerUp is better known for mixed-martial arts clothing, humorous videos targeted towards men and pictures of scantily clothed women.

Yet, this video takes a serious tone in focusing on this crime committed in Tulsa.

While the video has gained a worldwide audience on YouTube (nearly 40,000 views by this afternoon), the specific target are two Comedy Central hosts John Stewart and Stephen Colbert.

Bob and Nancy Strait were attacked during a home invasion on March 14th.

Bob, who is 90, suffered a broken jaw and broken ribs in the attack and was shot with a BB gun.

His 85-year-old wife, Nancy, was sexually assaulted and beaten to death, ending their 65-year marriage.

Tulsa Police later arrested 19-year-old Tyrone Woodfork, who now faces charges of first-degree murder, first-degree burglary, assault with a deadly weapon and two counts of robbery with a firearm.

He's jailed without bond. Police are seeking other suspects involved in this crime.

An account has been set up to support the Strait family:
