Like President Obama's 2009 reading of "Where The Wild Things Are" on the White House's South Lawn, this video of actor Christopher Walken (or a very good impersonator) tackling Sendak's most famous work in 2011 is getting a second look online. And while it's not quite on par with Walken's dramatic reading of Lady Gaga's "Poker Face," his signature improvisation of the mostly illustrated book is still wildly entertaining.
"There's a bear ... strung up," Walken says. "I assume murdered. Maybe a suicide. I dunno."
