I didn't even know this video existed - until John Chenault hipped me to it this morning. Thanks John, errr... I mean, Jeff.


But...


I have no memory whatseover of giving that interview!


And...


Some of you noted that the fella talking was identified as "John" Teitelbaum. Yeah, I caught that little detail too.


My only conclusion is that it wasn't me in that video... it was my insane clone, "John".


This is the last time I let random people with video cameras videotape me, and/or my clones, especially after too many mai tais.


Yeah, blame it on the booze.


It's always worked for me, so far.


As an aside, the guy hosting the thing gets the date and location of the first Trader Vic's wrong - it opened in Oakland, not San Francisco, in 1934 not 1944. The Mai Tai was invinted in 1944 tho. But I guess I don't have to tell youse guyses that.


But my favorite bit of coolness is that the girl I ranted on and on about in my review of Trader Vic's Atlanta on the old Tiki Bar Review Pages (still archived at
http://www.tydirium.net, go ahead, I will wait) is one of the babes in the video.


She still hasn't given me the time of day, but damn, no one crunches a crab rangoon like she does, and now that we're in the same video, it practically makes us engaged.


Send gifts.

I saw this a couple of years ago. I thought it was posted here, but I can't find it either. I think I first saw it around the time of the first Tiki Torch Nights in Atlanta. I think the JT part was likely shot back then at the first one you came down for. That must have been the second TTN or so.

Here's some more Tikivision featuring yours truly.

http://www.wciu.com/

Well, they didn't make me seem TOO much like a weirdo..!

It is on the front page right now, but I imagine that you'll have to click the 'video room' link on the left side if you're reading this post more than a week or so after the fact.
