Video of the Day: Christopher Walken Reads “Poker Face”


In case you weren’t sure if British TV is better than American TV (as if The Office wasn’t already enough of an indication), the folks over at BBC 1 stumbled upon a video gold mine when Christopher Walken arrived as a guest on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross and out-Gaga’d Gaga. Sure, Jude Law may have already done this here in America, but we don’t recall him ever prescribing more cowbell as a remedy for, well, anything.

Point: Walken.

Check out his spoken word rendition below and let us know which of the two you prefer. Note: We’ve also posted Cartman’s cover — which we consider the definitive version of the song — just because it’s hilarious, and we’ve never had an excuse before now.
