Published May 02, 2013As we all know, Nardwuar loves surprising his interviewees with some of the most random gifts of all time. Most of the time, he straight up blows their minds, and the tam-topped griller did it again while chatting with the Roots' drummer Questlove.
Just check out the incredulous laughter Nardwuar gets out of the guy after showing him a vintage poster of a weeklong Motortown Revue featuring Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles and, amazingly, a ventriloquist named William Tyler and his knot-headed dummy Lester. The poster, however, gets Questlove to talk about his own role as "the epicentre of revue shows," hinting at how he's backed countless acts on tour, in the studio and on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
Later on, they talk about The Cosby Show, old-school Philly rap outfit Tuff Crew, and Quest's love for smacking someone with a nice Hawaiian Punch. At over 45 minutes long, this is one of the longer Nardwuar interviews in recent memory, and you can check it out down below.
