I have a delicious love/hate relationship with Tom Waits (or, at least, his music and persona, seeing as I don’t ACTUALLY know Tom Waits and I’m not sure I’d want to) that I think is exactly the kind of relationship one should have with Tom Waits. But whatever my feelings about him may be, there is no denying his brilliance, or how fantastically wonderful this video is:

You have to watch it and bow to him just a little, even if you think he’s the most wretched being on earth (though, how could you? I mean- there’s always the President, for example, who will win the ‘Most Awful Human’ award before many others, dear Tom included). Watch it. Really.
