Fairly Sure Jim Didn’t Fix This
Posted by gauloises1 on May 17, 2010
So … huge thanks to Tracy, who emailed me the link to this equal parts sweet and odd video of Delpo. I’d be lying if I said I knew why this happened, but basically a Delpo fan gets the chance to hit with … Delpo, probably through some Argentine version of ‘Jim’ll Fix It’. Except that’s too easy, so Delpo dresses up as more or less a ’70s porn star and pretends to be someone else (‘Pablo del Potro’?), apparently fooling the kid, who displays Lois Lane levels of willing suspension of disbelief. And his reaction when he finds out is, if it’s possible, genuinely heartwarming.
Oh just watch it. It’s the closest thing you’re going to get to watching Delpo for a long, long time.
Also? I still love him when he’s in his Chuckle Brothers style garb.
I’m sick. I need help.
(Thanks again to Tracy for bringing this into my life.)
