OK. OK. OK. There are viral videos and then there are VIRAL VIDEOS. This, “Morgan Freeman Reads The Fox by Ylvis,” is of the latter category. Posted earlier today by Screen Junkies, the video will make your day and then some.
During a press day for the upcoming film Last Vegas, Freeman, along with entire cast of the film, read through the lyrics of today’s flimsiest pop songs. Robert De Niro performs Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball." Then, Michael Douglas does Alison Gold’s "Chinese Food." And finally, Kevin Kline reads One Direction's "Best Song Ever.” How do the bubblegum tracks hold up through the lenses of Academy Award winners? Not very well at all. And it’s delightful.
