The Most Intentionally Funny Video of The Day 1/15/14: WITS’ ‘Tom Waits Does Math’ with David Cross
By Jake Kroeger on January 15, 2014
The Razzies, the awards that point out the worst in movies, just announced their nominations, and continue to only go for the big movie releases and never, for my money, really find the worst movies and their respective performances. Lindsay Lohan is low hanging fruit at this point and a controversial choice, since some thought she did OK in The Canyons. No one is going to do a Razzie version of The Independent Spirit Awards, but know that there are some awful movies that somehow got enough of a limited theatrical run that they should be in consideration for a Razzie. I unfortunately don’t what those are because who has time for bad indie movies unless they’re on Netflix? I do know that there is always a time for something that isn’t convoluted and is great, like The Most Intentionally Funny Video of The Day.
Today’s MIFV comes from the archive of public radio’s Wits with John Moe, an ad for an instructional cassette tape collection of Tom Waits Does Math, with featured guest, the one and only David Cross.
Here’s the previous MIFV pick, in case you missed it.
