OBEY THE GIANT


So if you ran into wrestler Andre the Giant, you'd probably be a little intimidated by him, right? I mean, the dude was seven feet four. How would you react - or, rather, how would he react - if you stood next to him and tried to strike up a conversation?

Well, if you go to the 3:35 mark in this video, you'll see what happens after such an occurrence. And, wouldn't you know, it happened to someone whose work you're very familiar with. The results, as they say, speak for themselves.

Also: what's with the ultra-creepy interviewer? I mean, seriously? When he leaned into the camera, I actually backed away from my monitor a little.

But, yeah, Warner is the man

I've met Andre the Giant in 1980 during the annual Lake Memphremagog swim in VT. He was a sweetheart!! HUGE hands, and two and a half of anyone else would fit in one of his. And the kids just loved him (not mine, but other people's kids).

Maybe the interviewer was scared of Andre...

Pat, that's so awesome! He sounds like he was as much fun then as he was here with Warner.

Maybe I shouldn't have been so hard on the interviewer, because I think some of his creepiness stems from his then-popular 1980s fashion choices. He was a victim of the era.

Hey, CG - why is Imus off this week? An Iranian airliner went down - he could be talking about his golf game!

CG said...

LOL, precisely!

I think I remember one morning when he complained about the sun, because it was shining in his eyes through the studio window. He then demanded that someone move the Sun for him. Classic.

How come McCord has a prostate "the size of a basketball"?

CG said...

That is a very good question. Personally, I've always wondered how the I-Man learned such "intimate" information about his partner. :)

Hey Imus's birthday is coming up July 23, he will be 69, my goodness that is some kind of achievement, especially considering Hillary Clinton has a voodoo doll made to look like him full of pins ;)

I wonder if Charles does have a swollen prostrate? I mean is he feeling sharp pains in the groinell area....we know by know where Hillary likes to stick it LOL!

Is that how Hillary broke her elbow?!
