"They always show me angry; they never found a softer, kinder, gentler George." Well here's a softer side we haven't seen. The horror is at the 00:11 second mark. Watch at your own risk, you have been warned.
"He doesn't want to knock the guy's acting; he wants to knock his clothing and hairdo." This was his chance to praise Larry David. And speaking of acting, THIS is acting. Clearly big Stein had first dibs on Mr. Belvedere and simply passed on the role Bob Uecker eventually took because Uecker's Miller Lite commercials couldn't touch this one. And as far as clothing, I think we could all take a lesson from Billy Martin here. ESPN should be doing an "Outside the Lines" on that jacket.
"George's hair is more neatly trimmed. He doesn't wear a wig; people think that because he's perfectly barbered. He doesn't have a hair out of place." Fair point, his dome wig is perfectly barbered as evidenced in the following video. Platt's looks like a bloated, feathered version of Pete Rose's helmet wig. Also, look for a special appearance from bizarro Tony Danza in this commercial.
