Adie Russell's Uncanny Lip-Synchs
Adie Russell is an interesting artist with a unique and pleasant body of work. However, she will most likely receive her share of internet fame for her wonderful lip-synchs of famous interviews and political figures. Suffice it to say that you all have to watch this clip of a Merv Griffin interview with Richard Nixon. Adie does both sides of the interview, putting enough subtlety, character and conviction into the lines to make it stick. She's absolutely spot-on and I know art when I see it.
The singularity of what I was viewing took a moment to sink in, but once it did I was hooked. I think I like the Ginsberg clip even more.
