This video of Tom Hanks dancing with the weather girl on Univision has been everywhere for the last day (including the Uproxx homepage yesterday), but I didn't get all the way through it until this morning because the first minute is so horrifically awkward. Hanks is there ostensibly to promote Larry Crowne, but the segment looks more like an immersive crash course in Spanish gone wrong. "What? Oh, yes! The solstice! Today is the solstice, that's right... Yeah, sure, let's do the weather. Anything but this torturous cacophony of foreign jabber." He then speaks a language every man knows: dancing with a beautiful woman whose clothes seem to be painted on. Worth it? Worth it.
Incredibly, this clip is only about a quarter of the time he spent on "Despierta America." I've got all four of the clips on the following pages, and I assume they're pretty enjoyable if you speak Spanish or enjoy watching people try to breach language barriers. Personally, I think the highlight is the cooking segment, but that's just because I understood some of what was being said. "He said tortilla! I know what that is!"
