Christopher Walken appeared on “Friday Night with Jonathan Ross” on BBC One this weekend, and Ross had him read the lyrics to Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face.” (If you’re new to Earth, this is the original song. Better version here.) As you might expect from anything that has Christopher Walken, it is amazing. I’ve watched it three times and the first “Ooh!” makes me laugh every time.
Show of hands: who would buy a spoken-word album of Walken reading the lyrics to various pop songs? Everyone? That’s what I thought. Let’s make it happen, people.
