The Strangest Cover of "Let It Be" Ever

Remember that time Malcolm Jamal Warner, Dee Snyder, Katarina Witt, Peter Falk, and Huey Lewis all sang on the beach together? This collaboration will take some explaining. Gylne Tider was a Norwegian television series in the 2000s. The title translates to Golden Times in English, and the series featured interviews with celebrities of the 1980s that were popular in Norway. The video above was a promotion for season four and the celebrities that would appear. The stars really sang for their video recordings, but their voices were overdubbed for the finished product. The show had done a similar collaboration a couple of years earlier for a different season, in case you want to listen to "We Are the World" with a different set of celebrities from the 1980s and '90s.

Isn't Lou Ferrigno deaf? Or at least hard of hearing?

Also, if you want strange covers, listen to William Shatner or Leonard Nimoy sing. Or listen to Twisted Sister's Christmas album, "Twisted Christmas."

Holy cow, what a strange conglomeration of people to sing anything together.
I noticed Peter Falk and Kathleen Turner felt it would be better to just smile. Smart people know their limits unlike the rest of us who keep making fools of ourselves.
Now where's my hat with the bells on it?

I recall the original video of this for the appearance of Kate Bush doing her few seconds of the song. You can hear her bit in the Kelly McGillis sections. Do you have a link to that video?
