If this link still doesn`t work, there are three entries since this show on gawker.com <-- their opinion is that it`s both drugs AND a deliberate hoax. Very strange coincidence, I just saw Gladiator for the first time a couple days ago (I thought everything about it was tepid EXCEPT for the mad gleam in J.Phoenix`s eye LOL.) (Meaning he`s good at acting like crazy people becauzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.....?????? You fill in blank?)

Either he`s on acid, pretending to be a bum..or just....as lost as me, but that`s from the acid.

Remember the clip where he said he had frogs on his head? I think that`s when it started.

omfg...hhaa

Im glad he didnt try at all

Man, some of you are dense! It was an act. He even smirks a couple times trying to hold it together. He did this in response to all the tabloid rumors that he`s now a `druggie`. It`s very Kaufman-ish. I thought it was brilliant!

Letterman isn`t a Pr*k. He gets multi millions of dollars for being a smart AS$, something we`d all love to let loose when the timing is just perfect or the people you encounter deserve to be called out when their spaced out, rude, ignorant etc. Unfortunately, we aren`t that privileged in our every day lives or paid enormous cash to do that. We have to bite our tongues!!

Well I thought he was crazy about 3 years ago when he had that comment about having the frogs in his hair, but yeah he`s definitely crazy now.

Definitely doped up a bit. And David made the uncomfortable silence work for him. I love it.

Audience has full right to laugh at every word that comes out of his mouth, serious or not. Don`t go on national TV dressed like Grizzly Adams after mugging James Bond, all hopped up on drugs (I really hope he is, because if he`s not, he`s just a really slow, stupid, ignorant drat), and expect people to take you seriously.

come on everyone, he`s an actor. he doesn`t need drugs to act like this. i think he did it very well, he has nothing to say about his acting career because he doesn`t want to pursue it anymore. and he was right to call the audience on the BS for laughing at the idea of him making hip hop- just because he`s not trying to act like he`s black doesn`t mean he can`t make good hip hop music blah blablabla...

Ooh yay I finally got a link posted! Sorry it wasn`t available everywhere (though I`m in Canada and I could see it.. weird).

Also I`m practically in love with Joaquin Phoenix, but man I have no idea what`s going on. I really *really* hope it`s all a mockumentary type thing, but god was that a horrible interview to watch. Awkwardness makes me... awkward. Haha.

He is most certainly on acid. If you`ve ever enjoyed (or not) this particular drug, you understand this perfectly.

Yeah, I believe Starrstreet is right. He is doing some sort of "mockumentary" with Casey Affleck, so this is one giant act.

"I`ve never seen David Letterman`s show before, but he seems like a right pr*ck! Jabbing at him and making remarks when Joaquin is so obviously uncomfortable."

To those that are accusing Letterman of being a prick...

That`s his job people! Jaqouin wasn`t giving him anything to work with at all, so he played into it. He made the audience laugh... he turned lemons into lemonade. What the hell do you expect out of a comedy show? So you`ve never seen the show before... first of all, what planet do you reside on? And second, again, what do you expect Letterman to do? Sit there while a guest on his show says and does absolutely nothing?

WHERE THE HELL DO YOU PEOPLE COME FROM ANYWAYS??

I`m confused IAB help me out here.

I`m going to agree with lololeela on this one. This definitely looks like a funny publicity stunt.

Tremendous.

I can`t tell if he`s doped or acting. Regardless, this certainly is awkward.

I think this was a publicity stunt and Letterman was in on it. I`ve heard he`s been on his show before and he acts like a normal guy. This is just his character from his upcoming movie.

I don`t understand why he is so weird. What the hell is wrong with him? He doesn`t even respond to Letterman`s questions.

I though he`s doing a Borat-ish movie since he`s got a film crew around him like at all in times apparently. Its going to be some movie.

I felt bad for him, I hate being put on the spot like that and probably would faint if I was being interviewed like that.

I think he just has problems in interviews, or he`s on drugs.

There was a red carpet interview once with him that I saw, and he asked the interviewer in all seriousness:
"I have tiny bugs eating my scalp. Can you see them?"

Why is he acting so nervous? Maybe he has something to hide in that beard of his? HMMMM. Poor socially awkward dude.

It looked like something just prior to the interview happened that f*cked him up bad...

He looks depressed and just plain pissed off...

:( Makes me sad... He is a great actor...

he musta been blitzed as all hell or on severe painkillers. no other reason for the shades...

or he`s just the most awkward celebrity ever. i felt kinda bad for him, with the spontaneous laughter from the audience and Letterman jabbing him from time to time. poor guy, he must only feel at home when he`s laying down a track in the studio lol

Huh.

So it begins.

Some Youtube Videos are not available outside the US.

Like this one.

Next thing you know, you can pay to have "premium" service, and then YT goes the way of Ad-Critic.
