Steve Martin's Gay Affair Revisited

No, I'm not talking about the time he spent with Anne Heche. I'm talking about his romantic weekend getaway with David Letterman. I'd forgotten all about this video Martin crafted for The Late Show until last night, when I stumbled across it on YouTube. This is why I love Steve Martin. Well, this and Pennies from Heaven. And also for the scene in The Man with Two Brains where he tussles with Kathleen Turner and she gasps, "My balls!" (Why didn't Preston Sturges have Barbara Stanwyck do that?) No one but Martin could get the curmudgeonly Letterman to act as goofy as this.
