So, apparently, what my Uncle Lou did after the stroke wasn't a cry for help, he was a soviet performer...

Man, I wish you hadn't spoiled my memories of Uncle Lou.

(This also explains some of the more surreal aspects of this video...)

Even more disturbing is the poor lip synch. Dan, are you planning on incorporating this into your standup?

JCD said...

Excellent.

My life is different, somehow, now that I've witnessed this. I like how he kinda breaks it down near the end.

SO obscene in Pawnee! Love song in Cheyenne, though. He didn't look Amerind, where'd he learn that?!

I could easily have believed this was a Monty Python bit... imagine Terry Jones singing it...

James said...

Dude's got the moves to go with the pipes!

Tripping and lip-synching at the same time is a precious talent!

Not if I refuse to click on play! Which I didn't, click that is. It was too frightening just looking at the still version.

"The horror! The horror!"

Greg said...
