Damn. But such a good run.


So much about this. His character had just watched the moon landing, then died, and then this unexpected appearance of his ghost: the song begins talking about the moon.

Then, as the head of an ad agency, he tells the Hamm character that he's wasting his life - the best things in life are free. And Don Draper (Hamm) has so much contempt for everyone...except this guy.

Brilliant, subtle writing.And a fine send off for a beloved weirdo.

The documentary about it is a fascinating look into the comedy "industry" if that's the word for it. It's really good, and explains why other comedians were howling.
 
Well, I MIGHT have had a slight interest in seeing that docu, until I watched the “joke.” Not so much now. {#Rolleyes}

Yes. Yes it is.


But that's what's important to grasp about that whole situation. Gottfried, in his own words even, "lost an audience bigger than anyone has ever lost an audience" with the 9/11 joke. And THAT is how he responded to losing the audience. I can't even imagine the mind that connects the dots in that way.

Seems like some, but not all, of the laughter is nervous/embarrassed/shock.
