Not since Bing and Bowie . . .

I've been meaning to post this, not because it's gratingly bad or exceptionally good, but because it happened at all.

Rob Schneider singing "My Funny Valentine" while accompanied on piano by Marvin Hamlisch is the sort of mondo bizarro kitsch that WFAA8's Good Morning Texas should be specializing in. Even better: hosts Chris Flanagan and Amy Vanderoef almost act as though they're watching Michelangelo paint the Sistine Chapel.

The star of Deuce Bigalow: American Gigolo and its sequel turns out to have pretty decent pipes. And Hamlisch then hams it up at the end. The reference in the headline is to the Bing Crosby/David Bowie "Little Drummer Boy" duet on the crooner's last Christmas special in 1977. Schneider/Hamlisch can't match the timeless pop culture ripple from that one. But GMT at least had something you don't see every day. Enjoy (?)
