Two years ago I wrote about a lost late-night clip that should be on youtube, but isn't.
Last night I saw Bobcat Goldthwait at the Museum of the Moving Image (doing a Q&A after his excellent, low-fi Bigfoot movie WILLOW CREEK) and asked him to tell the story, since there's no evidence of it on the entire internet (short of my own blog post.)
Here's Bob describing his gag on The Arsenio Hall Show:
I wanted to share this oral history because there's a trend in low-paid journalism -- if you can't find a clip online, it's as if it never happened. Let this oral history become part of the collective memory.
Lastly: Bobcat is a terrific interviewee, if you have the chance to see him live, do it.
