It was thought lost to the ages, but now it is found.

You can spend so many years wandering through the dark and lonely desert of existence that you forget what you were looking for in the first place, but when you find it, all is well, and time is compressed to fit on the head of a pin. Also this guy’s face! (Thanks for the tip, basattak.)

  1. Never let it be said that a Detroit audience isn’t a polite audience.

  2. This may be the single greatest thing I’ve ever seen to this point in my life.

  3. Gabe – I have a question. Is it this specific clip that you’re nostalgic for or is it this show in general? Because if it’s this clip, I’d like to congratulate you on finding the needle of your childhood in the haystack of the internet.

  4. Those balls have a pen of their own, and yet they still can’t be contained.

    Those gosh darn balls.

  5. I just sent this to Prime Minister Netanyahu to watch with President Abbas. Let the negotiating process begin…

  6. I can relate to this guy on so many levels, but mostly on the level of having that Bad Boys sweatshirt in 1989.

  7. I love this a lot.

  8. Georgia on my Mind, Detroit on my Shirt.

  9. This had to be done. Someone get this man a lemon!

  10. Someone get me a proper link!

  11. “Cindy? Hi, it’s the producer of ’1980s Detroit-Based Talk Show’ aka ‘The Greatest Show on Earth.’ I wanted to see if it would be okay to push you and your waltzing-bear partner back one day as guests of the show. You see, we have this guy who can whistle ‘Georgia On My Mind’ and he’s only going to be in town tomorrow. What’s that? Yes, the bowling balls will come on as the second guest, since they’ve already been on 4 times. Sound good? Great! Looking forward to meeting you guys!”

    • These should all win this weeks caption contest. Don’t bother with a contest this week. Just give hipsterdad the award for these captions. These captions are my boyfriend. I married the captions. My husband I mean then yeah you know what I mean

  12. Touch my Camaro,
    Leave my Camel lights alone,
    Look at this mustache.

  13. It was just like the end of THE MUPPETS.

  14. Pretty sure the show is Channel 7′s long-running Kelly & Company. You guys can get off the edges of your seats now.

    • As soon as I read the title I thought, “I bet it’s Kelly & Company.” Sure enough there’s Marilyn Turner. Too bad it wasn’t John Kelly so everyone could see his awesome perm.

  15. Funny, I was just wondering if 1980s-Burt Reynolds could whistle. Now I know!

  16. This is by far the best weird face making Georgia on my Mind whistling I’ve ever seen, and true story alert, it’s not the first (it’s the second)

  17. “You’ve got to lubricate your pucker!” (shudder)

  18. The only tragedy here is that Ray Charles could not see this performance and probably also did not hear it.

  19. I like watching this with the sound off….

  20. “Whistling to the tune of Ray Charles classic, MACGRUBER”

  21. I’d love to see him duet with G.E. Smith.

  22. nearly 50 comments and not a single “I’m pooping” caption. The times they are a changin’.

  23. Andrew Bird’s new album is going to be so awesome.
