He’s also an accomplished actor, essayist, and calligrapher, and the leader of a pop group called World Order. And in this excellent music video, he’s taking New York by storm.

In which SNL just covered noted Crazy-maker Minnesota Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann’s Tea Party State Of The Union response (how’s that for a string of uninterrupted capitalized words?).

I have to say, I’m pretty impressed with the SNL impersonation.
