Mike Tyson was on the Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien last night. They talked about his role in The Hangover (thus completing Conan’s apparent quest to interview every single person involved with The Hangover) and about the James Toback documentary about him, Tyson. It’s a genial and interesting interview. Mike Tyson is such a weirdo.
But here’s the thing: it is hard to watch this interview without wondering if and when Mike Tyson is going to tell Conan O’Brien, “I’m going to fuck you until you love me, faggot.” You basically know he’s not going to do that. Probably. At the very least, it seems highly unlikely that he will say that in a late night interview. But maybe? Let’s just watch it again to make sure he doesn’t say that.
Hmm. He didn’t seem to say it. But it’s the tension that he might say it at any moment that makes it all so exciting (all=life). Also, what a strangely paced interview! Kind of intense!
