Here's Christopher Walken reading and narrating Where the Wild Things Are, a treat to rival Samuel Jackson's dramatic interpretation of Go the Fuck to Sleep.
Where the Wild Things Are (as read by Christopher Walken)
“Please, children, schootch closer. Don’t make me tell you, again, about the schootching.”
I listened to it. Pretty good but it needs more cow… aw, heck I can’t do it.
“…and there’s a goat-bastard riding on the back of some kind of, you know, rhinoceros.”
In case you were not satiated, there’s also his classic reading of The Three Little Pigs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2vNk4K3YaIc
His description of the pics is best…bear suicide…classic Walken.
Where the wild things … Are.
I think the universe might end if Walken impersonated Shatner…(or vice versa).
That was brilliant.
Just to clarify, this is just an impression, right?
Very much so, yes.
Apparently, trees growing into water (more likely near it) are freaking him out but the rest, including a lynched Teddy Bear is OK…
Don’t forget the bugs, oh, those are flowers with bug ears.
the tags on the YT post mention “impression” and “imitation” … just sayin’. its still very funny.
evil ernie…. goat bastard… spooning… this is hilarious!
Let’s not forget the classic Rev. Jesse Jackson and the reading of Green Egg and Ham.
It would be a lot better if it were actually Walken.
It’s more like Christopher Balkin’!
Fact-checking: apparently not a thing for Boing Boing in twenty twelve.
You could demand a full refund of your subscription price.
But it’s easier to demand facts!
His mudder called ’em… wild.. thang.
You must appreciate the Golan-Globus production of ‘Puss In Boots’ with Christopher Walken as a red-haired puss. Hulu has it.
