Beware of the Blog describes the "Why Do You Think You Are Nuts?" madness. There's the original clip, apparently from an early 1980s public access show. It's heartrending and surreal. Then there's a YouTube frenzy of riffs and covers, from the dark lounge version to the Saddam Hussein hanging remix.
The version I'm in love with is the Carol Channing puppet/spoken word one, a brilliant plunge into the uncanny valley. Yes, definitely a sign of the apocalypse, a la Kleist. (Did anyone else see that human-size Lamb Chop costume?)
Watching these versions along with some tv pranks brings back the weirdness of late-night tv, back in the day before cable.
