Viggo: "the best autograph signer"

mood: fannish

I don't know where I got it, but I uploaded this video of Viggo signing at the Oscars nominees lunch event. I found it a bit hard to watch, because it keeps going on and on and on, all the yelling and in-his-faceness just got to me. At the end of that is where someone says that they've voted him the best autograph signer. I wish just one person had yelled "We love you Viggo!" because for me it's more about that. Ah well. If I ever see him, I now have A Plan.

And then after the BAFTAs, I was trying to find the Famous Viggo/Orlando Hug and having a hell of a time. Though I found Viggo signing a zillion autographs, also Orlando, amazingly sweet and patient with the fans. But my l33t search skillz ;-) finally paid off and I found a great vid of them, set to "Something's Gotta Give" as sung by Frank Sinatra, by lotrips' own idrillia (two hours after she uploaded). The Hug is there, behind Hugh Laurie being interviewed. Pretty damn subtle: whoever noticed it should be recruited for spotting bank robbers or terrorists! ETA, from amygirl: longer clip of Ian, Orlando and Viggo! with Hugh Laurie dubbed in some other language. more squee!

Alas, it does not have Viggo extracting from under his waistcoat his Argentine football club's banner and displaying it proudly. Football fanboy, him. Makes stories of bonding with Bean that much more realistic.

Lotrips gets a lovely revival, lucky us!

Ooh, thank you for that! How lovely to see them together -- curses that no cameras caught it better than this.

Oh I like Viggo I just don't like V/O and so the fuss over the three second hug completely leaves me mystified beyond the fact that any reunion with the Ring boys is awesome... :-)

LOL...you know I didn't even think it had words I have my headphones plugged in and didn't even hear it. I just assumed that whoever made it muted it so we would have to listen to the interview. :-)

And listening to it now...no I don't know what language that is...

No problems - just don't ask me to translate (it was way too fast for me)

Thank you for that! I, too, have searched high and low for photographic evidence of the hug. On my flist, it was loreley_se who spotted the hugs and posted about it seconds later. I can't even tell if there's a full embrace there, but it's lovely, nonetheless.
