Charles Nelson Reilly kicked the holy living s*$& out of me

He once saved a crowded school bus from falling off of a cliff ... using only a scarf.
Firefighters blamed him for the Laguna Wildfire when his Aviator sunglasses came in contact with the sun.
People stop and stare at every word he writes, particularly when he writes "boobs."
He is the most interesting man in the world. And his name is Charles Nelson Reilly. The actor, comedian, director and Match Game fixture has been posthumously immortalized by comedy musician "Weird Al" Yankovic in a new hilarious online single called "CNR".
This time, Yankovic does a style parody of The White Stripes' indie rocker ballads to immortalize the satin scarfed one and his uncanny ability to eat coal and poop diamonds, calculate the definitive formula to cold fusion just so he could blow it back to Hell and make love to a manatee without facing criminal charges. That's probably because the manatee wasn't from South Carolina.
He also commissioned JibJab Studios to do an animated video of the song, the same studio that did an animated video of his parody of American Idol winner/loser Taylor Hicks. JibJab has the unique ability to let their viewers insert their mugs into their videos, so I took one for the team and let CNR kick me around for your amusement.
You better laugh. CNR hit me in the face with a shovel. So technically, he owes me a favor.
