I Finally Realized Why I've Always Loved This



It's a beaten down guy in a suit. He cuts loose in a fantasy at an empty hotel (which is empty only in his mind).  He even briefly pauses in the middle of it to contemplate whether he should continue this dream. And at the end, he sits back down in a chair and realizes his life has not changed at all.

Talk about Walter Mitty! There's even some flying like in Birdman.

(I don't know who I was dating at the time I first saw this but I remember her telling me the video was "stupid".)

He's a weird character, but I have always like him. He has played some stranger people in his movies.

I dare, no, I DOUBLE DARE, Barry do a 30-second routine of this in the Wise County courthouse and post it to YouTube.

Has to be one of the most brilliant music videos of all time. So much going on: catchy song, Walken, Spike Jonze directing. May go down as the last great music video since that idea has pretty much died off since then.

Anything with Christopher Walken having a part is usually worth a look. He is unique.

It was me, it was stupid then and it's still stupid. So are you for not marrying me.
