Don King CNN: From the hype to the hair there isn’t a soul alive that can promote anything quite like Don King can–just ask the people at CNN’s @ThisHour.
At one time he was one of the most recognizable personalities in sports let alone boxing. His hair made it hard not to notice him, and when he started to talk it was hard not to listen. When he was done even the most non-violent of people were shelling out the money so they could see his latest pay-per-view fight.
Well–he’s not in the boxing game anymore, but since he had a hand in some of the most legendary boxing fights in the history of the sport. CNN had him on @ThisHour recently, but what was memorable was not what he was actually there for. No, it was what he did after his segment.
He didn’t leave.
Wow. It’s hard to say what is more remarkable–Don King’s ability to pitch anything or the fact that a news program did a piece on beard transplants.
Of course the real news is that Don King is still Don King, and we have another cable program to thank for digging this clip out of virtual obscurity–the Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
