Dan Aykroyd Does a Terrible James Brown Impression

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | July 19, 2014 | Comments ()


Dan Aykroyd was on the Tonight Show with Bobby Rush to promote the James Brown biopic, Get On Up, that’s coming out in August. Dan Aykroyd is a talented man, but he clearly cannot do a decent James Brown impersonation. It’s a bit reminiscent of my grandfather’s version, honestly. On the other hand, Jimmy Fallon tries as well, because James Brown is one of those people you clearly can’t talk about with at least trying to capture some of his energy or mannerisms because otherwise the story won’t make sense. All of the impressions are terrible, yet also kind of hilarious in their own right:

    His performance right before the interview with Bobby Rush was also quite the treat. Aykroyd still has some brother Elwood in him. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

    What, they couldn't find Eddie Murphy for a quickie?

    His eight million dollar vodka that comes in a skull is nice though. I mean not really, but for the price of it, you might as well say/think it is.

    my classmate's aunt makes $68 every hour on the
    computer . She has been fired for 7 months but last month her paycheck was
    $15495 just working on the computer for a few hours. visit the site C­a­s­h­f­i­g­.­C­O­M­

    Well that better be bullshit, cause your classmate's aunt owes me $15496, and I told her if she was a dollar short, I would have to choke a bitch...
