life imitates matt foley


This video was released and went viral last fall but I totally missed it until this week. What really enhanced my enjoyment was a comment someone made on You Tube about how this gentleman probably “lives in a van down by the river!” That was the signature line of Matt Foley, the motivational speaker character played by the late Chris Farley on “Saturday Night Live.”

This guy really does sound like he’s channeling Matt Foley. Particularly about 90 seconds into the video. Watch it and then try the clip below and see if the tone of voice sounds about the same.

Tell me this stalwart Republican is not the reincarnation of Matt Foley! The sound in this clip clears up 40 seconds in. In case the video is made unusable by misguided copyright watchdogs, the You Tube version is here.
