When I started planning out my Meltdown week, there were about twenty clips I wanted to narrow down to my top five. Early on, I decided not to go with sports players/managers, or non-celebrities to help ease my process. Here’s some of my favorites that didn’t make the cut.
We’ll start with baseball legend, Tommy Lasorda.
Alec Baldwin has a huge meltdown over his daughter snubbing him.
Lily Tomlin on the set of I Heart the Huckabees. I had a tough choice between this one and the David O’Russell clip from the same set, but I think the David clip is a little more fleshed out.
This meltdown isn’t that great, but the facial expressions of the field reporter, after he slams his pad down, and that of the anchorman are absolutely priceless.
In times of crises, we tend to revert to our earlier times in life. In the case of this field reporter, he was a far less polished gentleman.
Ringo’s just too popular, and can’t handle his fan-mail any longer. He’s telling you shove it, with much peace and love.
The reactions from Mike Myers as Kanye goes off on a tangent are fucking spectacular, and his level of awkwardness slays me every time I watch this. For the record, I care about black people.
If I’ve missed any of your favorites this week, stop by the forum and share them with me. I can’t wait to see what I’ve forgotten!
