This video of Connie Chung singing "Thanks For The Memories" to her cable TV friends lasts two minutes  and forty-eight seconds. You won't be able to watch it all. But stay for the de-pianoing grunt.  Dvorak Uncensored promises "this may be the most dreadful thing I've ever seen." One commenter: "If the Gong Show were still on, she couldn't even qualify."

WHAT was Connie thinking?

Just watching this train wreck I almost did to Blinq what I once did to Dan Rather.

Wow. I mean...wow. I guess that was supposed to be funny, but it's unspeakably embarrassing. The worst part is that I can't get her tone-deaf warbling out of my head.

Okay, I can understand Connie was never hired for her singing ability.

I can understand she even thought this may have been funny, or at least I could see someone talking her into doing it.

What I can NOT understand is how anyone, especially Connie herself, thought it would be a good idea for her to channel Carol Burnett and slide off the piano bass ackwards complete with sound effects.

Oi.

well all the comments above are certainly true, but let's face it, Miss connie cuts a pretty damn good figure.
but otherwise, totally m-m-m-mortifying.

I made it through 45 seconds.  Does that get me into the Guinness Book of Records?

OMG ... Maury, you're a real man, in my book.

The "groan/grunt" made it all worthwhile - louder than a Monica Seles forehand! How could somebody so fit looking have such a hard time getting off a piano?
