Art Buchwald Says Hi

Maybe Conagra Knows Something We Don't

By Published on .

Perhaps I shouldn't doubt Crispin and Conagra for reanimating Orville Redenbacher. After all, none other than the New York Times is offering ... I don't know ... video obituaries? They've interviewed people prior to death so that they can have "the last word."

Creepy or poignant? You decide. But I'll tell ya, when Art Buchwald's head pops up at about second 32 in this video and practically shouts, "Hi. I'm Art Buchwald and I just died," it made me scared and made me laugh ... which is probably what he wanted.
