Okay, but I don't think that was an intentional reference to Al's song. It's just a case of both things referencing Borgnine. It'd be different if the video made reference to the song by name in some way.

I don't know, I think this animator is a huge Al fan. I would lean on the side of intentional Al reference for nearly everything in this video.

Me, too. I will be watching more of this video. I like it. I like Al's face in it instead of being just some animated thing to an Al song.

Oh, come on now... if the video referenced some huge celebrity who is popular right now, you could say it's just a coincidence. Ernest Borgnine, however, has to be an intentional reference. How many of Al's young fans would have ever heard of him except for Al's song? I know he is the voice of Mermaid Man on Spongebob Squarepants, but seriously, how many kids actually know that?

It would be the same thing as having a Dick Van Patten reference in the video.

EDIT: "Richard" Van Patten? Seriously? Okay, how about D!ck Van Patten?

Oh, I thought it was the forum software censoring that word for everyone. I didn't know there was a filter that I could turn on or off.

Also, Al tweeted a pic when he met Ernest Borgnine last year and called him Borg-9 in the caption

Oh man the Curb Your Althusiasm thing on the TV was AWESOME!! Im a huge LD and Curb fan so I laughed really hard at that. I wonder if he had to ask Larry if he could do that or if it doesn't really matter.
