While browsing youtube recently, I found a spectacular clip.
It's from the David Letterman show. The guy singing is Mandy Patinkin, an actor/singer most famous for his role as Inigo Montoya in The Princess Bride. According to a few youtubers who posted on the video, Mandy and Tony Randell, some other famous guy, would occasionally drop in on Dave's show on their way to Broadway, joking around about how they were late.
They heard that the show wasn't going very well, so they decided to let Mandy give an impromptu rehearsal to spice things up. All the laughter during the clip is because it was completely and therefore delightfully unexpected.
This is proof that Mandy Patinkin is epic.
Side note: You might remember my post ranting about youtubers over here. I recant my position a bit, since they helped me to appreciate the video with their background information on it. But they're not completely perfect... One person only commented: "hes hot with a beard... go mandy!", which doesn't restore faith.
