I believe that John Hodgman may have achieved the apotheosis of Internet-type mash-ups. The following YouTube clip is video evidence of Dana Gould, doing his impersonation of Maurice Evans, portraying Dr. Zaius, doing a scene from Hal Holbrook’s “Mark Twain Tonight”. Why was this thing done? Do you really need to know? Is it not enough for you that this exists? It’s possible the reasons for this mash-up are lost to the ages.
Now, I say Internet-type mash-ups, because the Internet was not able to provide this on its own. Sure, it’s being provided on YouTube, a part of the Internet, but the entire production required professional help.
Thank you professionals.
