Funniest thing I’ve ever seen: Funny or Die’s “The Ralph Macchio Story”

Oh. My. God.

Words can’t capture the wondrous awesomeness of this thing. Especially for somebody like me, who came of age in the 1980s, watched Eight Is Enough, was weaned on the likes of The Breakfast Club and St. Elmo’s Fire, and flipped over the original The Karate Kid. Ralph Macchio playing himself at 48, in a mockumentary about a decision by his family and friends to stage an intervention because he needs to shed his nice-guy image and get all grungy so that he can be hot again in today’s Hollywood?

Somebody call 911. Can’t. Breathe. Laughing. Too. Hard.
