"Ready for dinner"
Jimmy Kimmel was all over Best Picture winner “The King’s Speech” during his show last night. The ABC late night host unveiled a spoof of the film, presented as a trailer for a new, Americanized version of the Oscar champion. It was titled, “The President’s Speech,” and featured former President George W. Bush and boxer Mike Tyson.
There isn’t much that this send-up doesn’t have. The 43rd President of the United States struggles to utter a coherent sentence during interviews and speeches, and brings in the “stupendously loquacious” former boxing champ — who paints oil portraits of unicorns in his free time — to clear up his vocal disability. This movie is not yet rated, but totally awesome.
