The Unexpected

I very much enjoy the work of Michel Gondry, especially his music videos. In his film The Science of Sleep the character Stephanie, played by Charlotte Gainsbourg, says, "Randomness is very difficult to achieve... organization always merges back if you don't pay attention." I find this to be true in all aspects of art.

As the so called "late night wars" are now fading out of the public consciousness, I wanted to put up a video showcasing a classic moment from the Johnny Carson show. It's beautiful because it surprises you over and over again, each time the random antics build towards a hilarious end.
