Warner Music is undertaking the process of diving into the Warner Library’s archive footage to see what gems they can find. A new YouTube channel called The Warner Sound will be featuring the material and one of the first clips they’ve released is of comedian Steve Martin from 1978.
In the video below Martin plays a hilarious sales guy, who starts off by asking the viewer, “How would you…like to win…$1?!” The winner of the $1 has to sell as many of Martin’s Wild and Crazy Guy albums as they can. They also have to fill out a form which asks for their name, religion and sexual orientation. You know, minor details about a person’s life.
“Steve Martin knows how to sell a joke,” reads the Warner Sound YouTube channel. “Back in the day, record labels used to make promotional tapes for retail stores hyping their latest releases. This clip from 1978 was known as one of the funniest presentations ever made by Steve Martin, the wild and crazy guy himself.”
The real gold in this clip other than Martin’s performance is actually hearing some of the comedian’s stand-up from back in the day. Check it out below and let us know what you think.
