Although it doesn't quite carry the same cache as past generations, there are still millions who tune in to the major networks' nightly newscasts. NBC's Brian Williams anchors the most watched of those newscasts with NBC Nightly News. While Williams is the straightest of straight news men, he's also a great target and participant in comedy bits. If anything, Williams has distinguished himself from the competition because of his comedic aptitude.
While the following clip isn't from B-Will (I think it's ok if I call him that) directly, it's another great comedic clip centered around the NBC Nightly News anchor. His NBC cohort Jimmy Fallon created a mashup of Williams' various newscasts to create a performance of Nuthin but a G Thang. It is simply remarkable…
Hopefully we'll see more of this as creative mashups are one of the most underrated memes existing today. Also, this is officially now my second favorite Brian Williams gag behind The Soup's "Meow with Brian Williams."
