A Norwegian TV show does “Let It Be.” Succeeds.

When you first watch this, you’re not quite sure what it is you’re seeing – but you know it’s freaking awesome. I mean, Sheryl Lee shows up. And Leslie Nielsen (RIP). AND STEVE GUTTENBERG!!!!!!!!!!!! And they’re all digitally superimposed onto a beach, singing one of the best songs of all time.

The TV show, apparently, has a retro theme and is dedicated to profiling people who were pretty famous back in the day, but are mostly straight up chilling out of the public eye nowadays. Or, you know, straight up chilling to the extent that such a thing is possible (in the case of Pam Anderson, Mickey Rourke, etc.).

I don’t know whose idea it was to bring “Let It Be” into all of this, but that person deserves a Nobel Prize in a category they need to make up exclusively for such attacks of random genius. I mean, this video made me smile when Tonya Harding appeared. The people who made it knew what they were doing. Ave.

Susan Boyle on Britain’s Got Talent


Isn’t she lovely? Isn’t she wicked? I think we needed her.

I don’t care if this is one of those “good television” moments that people like me are supposed to sneer at.

I am of the opinion (not a very humble opinion) that few things are better than a joyous woman with a sad song in her. Somebody needs to get on their game and write a novel about this already.
