Tom Jones

Spellbinding. I'm not sure if Ron Burgundy is my generation's Tom Jones, or if Tom Jones is the Baby Boomers' Ron Burgundy.

So much greatness in this, especially his supreme confidence that just by being smarmy and cool he can put on a good performance...he clearly hadn't rehearsed what he was going to do in terms of dancing/moving around (on and off clapping and snapping fingers, just constantly turning his torso to and fro) and yet he still pulls it off.

Unfortunately, the years have not been kind to Tom:

How the mighty have fallen...gotta love that goatee. God bless you, Tom Jones.

Good Lord, what was that noise at 2:08 (on the second clip)?
