Some incredible genius has re-edited an interview with Ed Asner on William Shatner’s show, Shatner’s Raw Nerve, and turned it into an original, hilarious one-minute video.

Watch it again. It’s so good! Seriously, someone needs to find out who this genius is and give him millions of dollars, 72 virgins, an opportunity to guest-blog for a pop culture website.

  1. It was funny, I’ll GRANT* you that.

    *Asner is best known for his character Lou Grant, who was first introduced on The Mary Tyler Moore Show in 1970. In 1977, after the end of the Mary Tyler Moore show, Asner’s character was given his own show, Lou Grant, which ran from 1977-1982. In contrast to the Mary Tyler Moore show, which was a thirty minute comedy, the Lou Grant show was an hour long award-winning drama about journalism. (For his role as Grant, Asner is the only actor to win the Emmy award for a sitcom and a drama for the same role.)

    • I’m ashamed I had to look that reference UP.

    • You should never have to explain a joke. That’s just wrong*.

  2. Apparently peanut butter is kosher!!

  3. That was lip smacking good.


  4. Thumbs UP*!

    *This is an asterisk

  5. One day you’re singing in the shul, and the next you’re Mr. Ed (Asner) in a standoff with Captain Kirk. Life is crazy, man.

  6. I personally thought the Kevin Pollak edit was funnier:

  7. Dramatization. May not have happened.

  8. Has anyone SEEN Shatner’s raw nerve? I caught it recently and he was interviewing Mary Kay Letourneau and her child husband about their “courtship”. Um, what?! It was beyond weird.

  9. Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear
    Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair…
    So he changed his name to Ed Asner.

    *Special thanks to Dot of Animaniacs for this touching poem.*

  10. If Asner makes any sense at all at this point, it’s a win. The guy is ANCIENT.

  11. That pretty much wins the internet.

  12. William Shatner and Henry Winkler have a complicated gay relationship

  13. I love how intimate the seat is. I want every interview to be carried out on a seat like that.

  14. But when properly hydrated, Ed Asner is a delight.
