Our Favorite Golden Globes Moment: Morgan Freeman Singing and Bathing in a Casket

Our Favorite Golden Globes Moment: Morgan Freeman Singing and Bathing in a Casket

Jan 16, 2012

Alright, last post about the Golden Globes we promise, but this is totally worth it. During the Morgan Freeman montage before he was presented with the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement, they played a ton of clips from Freeman movies. It was sweet and memorable and people clapped, blah blah. But sandwiched in along with all those clips there was one featuring Freeman as Count Dracula singing and bathing in a casket. Many of you at home were probably all like "WTF" when that one clip briefly flashed on screen, thinking it was some sort of practical joke. Alas, it was not.

That was actually a real clip from a very real appearance on The Electric Company, which was a show that starred Freeman (among several others) that aired from 1971-1977. Our live-blogger Joe Piccirillo was obsessed with the clip once they aired it, continually going back to it since, in many ways, watching Morgan Freeman sing in a casket was a lot more entertaining than the awards show itself. Nevertheless, for those who were unfamiliar with the clip or the show, we've dug it up and re-posted it below for your enjoyment.
