If you’ve ever yearned for evidence that life is a wildly incomprehensible and disturbingly circular simulation, here it is.
Overnight, a video of comedic deity Mike Myers taking to a stage in Los Angeles surfaced. He wasn’t there to do stand up; nor was he there to spruik Dr Evil‘s 2020 presidential run.
Instead, he got up and did a rendition of BBC, a most iconic tune from the greatest cinematic feat of 1997, Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery.
If your memory of this song is hazy, shame on you, but also here it is:
To make matters all the more confusingly delicious, Myers’ performance was actually just a guest spot in what was a Liam & Neil Finn (of Split Endz and Crowded House fame) show at Largo in LA.
There mightn’t have been a paisley pocket square or yellowed tooth in sight, but Myers gave the performance a spirited crack, complete with an appropriately-horned up British accent:
But wait; there’s more!
Mike, wherever you are right now, we’re still holding out hope for the fourth instalment. Please, for the love of our sardonic Dog, make it happen.
Our bodies are ready.
