I know we experienced A Johnny Carson Moment a mere two weeks ago but this clip was too priceless to hold onto any longer. Here’s the hilarious and bizarre Andy Kaufman (d. 1984) morphing from “Foreign Man”/Latka Gravas into an amazing Elvis Presley before our very eyes. A classic Tonight Show performance that originally aired in March of 1977. Shake it, baby!
*Note to Andy: I hope your death has been a decades-long performance art piece. Maybe come back next May on the 30th anniversary of your “death,” huh? You ain’t getting any younger. Looking forward to your return!
