Andy Kaufman Rises from the Grave!

I normally don't post videos that I didn't have something to do with, because why would I? But I had to share this interview. Joaquin Phoenix was on David Letterman last night and it couldn't have been more of a train wreck, or was it?

I haven't watched Letterman in a while, and this interview made me remember that he is a brilliant man. He handles Wackuin Phoenix with masterful comic timing. It's a marvel to behold.

However, I have to call supreme bullshit on Phoenix. No one goes off the deep end that quickly, and agrees to appear on a talk show. Not only that but he has had numerous media "incidents" lately documenting his spiral downward into crazy town. If those weren't staged you can take away my Playstation. Unless he gets admitted into a rehab clinic, mental hospital, or OD's on funkinberries in the next year, than I think he's faking.


This wreaks with Andy Kaufman-esque overtones. I firmly belive that he is staging all of this for some monumental joke/publicity stunt to get people interested enough to drop some cash on his "hip hop" album.

I'm not saying it's bad. Quite the opposite, I love it. I just wanted to let everyone know when the reveal happens that I have the right to say, "I told you so".

PS
Asked an improv buddy of mine that has a show tonight at Dad's Garage if I could do a walk on as Joaquin Phoenix. She said OK and I threw together a costume, what do you think guys:

He's either coked up or he's drunk.

I just found out I'm going to be in an improv show tonight playing him, so I'm super excited, or am I super depressed?
