Orson Welles does a commercial for a board game.
Real audio of Orson Welles doing commercials for frozen peas, fish filets and hamburger beef. Completely worth your four minutes and 22 seconds.
Posting the Thanksgiving Carson/Severinson clip always sends me down a rabbit hole. I think this is Carson’s most badass unscripted, spontaneous moment. You see flashes of the harsh and not always so friendly “real Johnny” the public never saw, what was at the time an unprecedented look at the behind the scenes workings of a television show, and it’s also just goddamned hilarious.
Tom Snyder interviews Carl Perkins on the Late Late Show in 1997.
Both of these guys are real-deal as it gets.
This “summit” with Picard, Riker, Spock and Kirk (moderated by Guinan!) is completely ridiculous. The entire thing is so much more awkward, tense and funny then I’d ever have guessed.
The very best part starts in this segment at 3:25, but watch all 7 parts for highlights like:
- Leonard Nimony repeatedly and non-ironically calling William Shatner a liar.
- Frakes asking Shatner to have his back about liking to autograph body parts.
- Stewart and Frakes being legitimately pissed Shatner has never seen TNG.
