Chevy Chase in Paul Simon’s “You Can Call Me Al”
This classic Paul Simon video was partially conceived by Lorne Michaels of Saturday Night Live. Pairing up Paul Simon and Chevy Chase was already a hilarious concept with the 6-foot, 4-inch actor towering over the 5-foot, 3-inch musician. As the two men sat in a pastel pink room, Chevy Chase took over the video as the song began by lip-synching all of Paul Simon’s lyrics. After having his video hijacked, Simon would chime in with the singing whenever there was a bass harmony in the song, having a lackluster expression throughout. During the video, he left the pink room several times to pick up different instruments to play so as not to let Chevy steal the whole show. The only time Simon showed enthusiasm during the humorous video was when he was able to play his instruments and dance with Chevy.
