Bet a bunch of Hollywood agents were fielding some angry calls from clients this week. Tonya Harding, Kathleen Turner, George Wendt, Glenn Close, and David Faustino are just a few of the random sort-of stars popping up in a sing along of "Let It Be." The video is being used to promote the Norwegian talk show Gylne Tider (“Golden Times”), but Faustino told the Hollywood Reporter that he was told it was meant to benefit charity.

Scandinavian TV show "Gylne Tider" is promoting its fourth season and was able to gather a large number of American celebrities from the 80s and 90s to lip sync to The Beatles' "Let It Be" song. The list of stars includes Jason Alexander, Steve Guttenberg, Lou Ferrigno, Ricki Lake, Tonya Harding, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Roger Moore, George Wendt, Glenn Close, David Faustino, Alfonso Ribeiro, Pamela Anderson, Mickey Rourke, Dolph Lundgren, Judd Nelson, Peter Falk, Kelly McGillis, Rick Schroder, Robert Englund, Kathleen Turner, Daryl Hannah, and even Leslie Nielsen. The video actually uses the "Ferry Aid" version of the song which was made in 1987 to benefit the victims of the capsized Ms Herald of Free Enterprise ferry that ended up killing 193 people. Video: »
If you've ever dreamed of witnessing washed-up icons of yesteryear like Dolph Lundgren, Philip Michael Thomas (who nearly killed me with his emphatic air guitar moment), and Alfonso Ribeiero sing The Beatles' Let It Be in a cheesy music video, then you are in luck! Taken from a Norwegian television show called "Gylne Tider", I'm not exactly sure why this even exists... but I'm just sort of glad it does.

If you haven't watched the viral promo for the Norwegian show "Gylne Tider" ("Golden Times"), yet, invest six minutes into a trip into randomness.
The video was released to promote the Oct. 31 premiere of the fourth season of the show in which celebrities are interviewed about their past work. The video features a slew of celebrities singing (or sometimes dubbed) The Beatles' "Let It Be" while dancing in front of a beach backdrop that has been digitally added.
Since the network airs many U.S. shows in syndication such as "Seinfeld" and the like, many of the stars featured are from these past shows. Jason Alexander, Malcolm Jamal Warner and Rick Schroder show up, as does "Married ... With Children's" David Faustino who claims he was tricked into participating.
"It was just one of those things that happened on the red carpet at some event, where a camera crew nabbed random, »
We love Norwegian TV promos as much as the next person, i.e., not at all. But we're making an exception for this weird-ass viral video promoting Gylne Tider (Golden Times), because there are more high-mileage celebrities lip-syncing here than in a whole season of Glee. Not only do you get George "Norm from Cheers" Wendt and Jason "George from Seinfeld" Alexander pretending to rip it up vocally to an all-star version of the Beatles classic, "Let It Be." But there's also Glenn Close, Ricki Lake, one of the guys who played James Bond and 40 more—including "gets" like Tonya Harding and Steve Gutenberg! Woot! »
In what I've decided to dub the weirdest 6 minutes I've spent on YouTube in a significant amount of time, here is a music video for a version of The Beatles' "Let It Be," as sung by a convoy of American and European celebs from the 80's and 90's. Some of them still respectable, some of them cult figures, and others are... Has-beens would be putting it kindly.
Throughout the song, the video keeps up an impressive level of befuddlement by slowly trickling out weirder and weirder appearances. Robert Englund? Right Said Fred? Tonya Harding? Wait, Glenn Close? Carlton? How? More importantly, why?!
I don't know what it says about me that I recognize pretty much all of these people. It was just the other day that I was asking people if anyone else remembers Michael Learns to Rock, to no avail. This video kind of »
