Nanners Plays it Cool…Joaquin Phoenix style

Inspired by Joaquin Phoenix’s recent “retirement from acting,” his Letterman guest appearance last night (2/11), and his rap performance a few weeks ago, Nanners has decided to put on his own hoax. He’s doned some shades, grown a beard, he’s workin’ on his music and ‘playin’ it cool.’

Of course, like Mr. Phoenix, Nanners is really only kidding himself, hoping to gain media attention for his Andy Kaufman-like publicity stunt — which is likely going to end up being a “Borat”-style shock comedy. Or perhaps Nanners and Joaquin are both having a public meltdown. Either way, maybe Nanners can land a Letterman spot, too. That’d be neat!

  1. i feel kind of sorry for Joaquin Phoenix because he does seem genuinely disoriented and Letterman gave him a hard time about it

    • Well, if you’ve followed Letterman’s older stuff, he’s had some crazy stunts pulled on the show before (Crispin Glover, Harvey Pekar, Andy Kaufman, Madonna, Drew Barrymore) and he acted the same as he usually does when those stunts were pulled.

      I think it was an act.

      If you watch the full video (above), note the end of the interview. Phoenix stands up, turns his back to the camera, shakes Letterman’s hand and removes his glasses. He’s also obviously talking normally. Methinks it’s all part of a prank documentary.

  2. […] and announce the Golden Nanners WINNERS!! Nanners had to take a break after going all “Joaquin“ on us. He tried to reconnect with his ape and monkey brethren, but that didn’t go so […]
