Psych does Ebony & Ivory - VIDEO

Shawn and GusSo, I'm minding my own business the other day, watching one of last season's Burn Notice episodes in anticipation of the new season, when I see a commercial that made me laugh out loud. It was a promotion for the new season of Psych. Gus and Shawn (Dule Hill and James Roday) in a familiar-looking black and white set, at a grand piano, sitting side by side singing "Ebony and Ivory." It was hilarious. So funny that I decided you had to see it. (below)

James Roday laying on a Paul McCartney accent. The giant keyboard with the title Psych where Steinway should be. Dule Hill in the Stevie Wonder part, with impossibly wide collar flaps and a toothy grin.


It was just a minute long; long enough to tell me that Psych will be back on July 18, Fridays at 10.

What a brilliant promo! One more reason I'm psyched about Psych. I think this upcoming season is going to be even better than the first two. These guys are just now starting to hit their stride. They're clicking on all cylinders, like a really fine comedy team.

And that starts with the actors and Steve Franks, the creator of the show. As Roday told TV Guide, "There is a special collaboration that's happening in this show between myself and Steve. I can tell you categorically that I've never had this much freedom as an actor."

Watch this promo and see if you don't agree with me that it's a reason to circle July 18 on the calendar. Oh, and if you're cynical, the answer is no, I'm not on the take for USA network. I'm just enthusiastic about good TV.

Dule Hill can't sing. Too bad.

Every Psychout I saw has been better than this. Seriously. They are a lot funnier on set than this :-)

You can watch a gazillion of those scenes on USA's homepage.

It was fabulous. I laughed out loud. A quick note; it was Michael Jackson not Stevie Wonder.

It's the pronunciation of "piano" that makes it genius.
