The hunched creature on the left is Anna ‘Nuclear’ Wintour, American Vogue editor, legend and the highest paid woman in magazines. The greige figure on the right is David Letterman, chat show host, legend and the highest paid man in television. Imagine how that conversation must fizz!
Two people at the giddy heights of their media careers. Together. On one screen. Chatting. It’s like the glory days of Oscar Wilde on a top night out with Lily Langtry. Conversation just sparking, setting fire to any furniture without a non-flammable kite mark. It makes your brain spin just to witness it.
Except Anna Wintour has obviously spent so much time personally wringing the necks of endangered species that she’s forgotten a little personality might be in order (but then have you seen the magazine?) while David Letterman’s writers (obviously, none of these words are actually his) seem to have been spending too much time brainstorming over Dunkin’ Donuts and not enough concentrating on doing good work.
See the video. Marvel at the vacuity of the smart set. At the end of the day, even Kerry Katona had the good manners to be pissed out of her head in order to bring a bit of life to proceedings. After the jump…
