Drunk James Brown Video

What says “festive” more than the Hardest Working Man in Show Business intoxicated during a television interview?

This gut-busting vintage video was recorded just after a very unfunny event where James Brown had assaulted his wife with a lead pipe. He had just been bailed out of jail and went on TV to promote his 2004 tour.

James Brown talks in song lyrics. “I Feel Good!” “Living In America!”  He hits on the female interviewer and makes the news crew off-camera actually laugh out loud.  Proving that no matter how bad things may get, there’s always music.

Happy holiday everyone!
