Steve Martin Can Really Sell You on Selling His Comedy


Back in the day of records and record stores and people buying albums, artists would make little promotional tapes to send to retailers to drum up support. Not surprisingly, Steve Martin was better at this than anyone else was at anything else. Shot in 1978, this shows Martin at the height of his powers. He is so locked into that persona that he can make this stupid little video completely hilarious. Seriously, him mouthing the words to his “pussy” joke is the funniest thing I have ever seen and hyperbolized.
