The greatest part of tonight's show was Tom Hank's story about going to meet the prime min of Japan.
For people who didn't see the episode:
Sony Pic or somebody offered Tom if he would like to go see the prime min of Japan (Koizumi).
Tom said sure, and he thought he needed to get him a gift.
After a few discussions here and there, someone suggests that Tom give Koizumi a mickey mouse watch because his character wears it in the movie.
So they decide.
Someone high up at Sony Pic says:
"Hey, we spent all this money making this movie, spending more money to send Tom to Japan to see the prime min, and we're giving a watch with a Walt Disney licensed character on it?"
So they decided to just give him an autographed DVC book instead.
That was a great story just because I was in the licensed products business.
Heh heh heh.
The worst part of the show was when they showed a clip of the movie.
It was the beginning of the movie where Tom is giving a lecture about symbols.
Yeah, it was a good clip...
It's just that it was the exact scene I watched many times subtitled in Japanese.
I had the sound off then, so this time I got to hear what Tom was saying in English for the first time, but...
I remember the lecture scene so much I can actually repeat the lines (in Japanese).
Overall it was a very funny night.
