WOW.

Now this is one of those things that I had no idea by the thread title.
But when I played the video I do remember seeing this guy a few times on the show.

I guess it sucks getting old.
So many old entertaining memories are becoming just that.
Some long dead, others faded but still entertaining memories.


Sadly they don't make "innocent" TV shows like that anymore.

Man I used to love this guy when I was a little squirt! He was the only reason to watch "The Gong Show".

:o He was a stage hand for the production. He would dance during the commercial breaks for the show and the live studio audience went wild. They decided to put him on the air and the rest is history. :ROTF:
