Dick Clark, an American icon has passed away. Of Clark's extraordinary career, American Bandstand, New Year's Rockin' Eve, TV's Bloopers & Practical Jokes, this is what I remember most of this American Icon.
that lasted about 50 seconds. Ever hear of the elevator pitch willy? You have 15 seconds to get your message and next steps across and agreed. First, Moore was rambling. Second, Clark wasn't ready to be ambushed by someone who is just plain obnoxious.
all 10 minutes of that crap. I just fast forwarded to get to the Dick Clark part, which mercifully lasted only 40 to 50 seconds. Now that I think about it, Moore targeted the wrong audience. He should have ambushed Don Cornelius and Souuuuulllll Train.
