Mr. T 'Pities the Fool' Who Doesn't Buy Gold

More

In what has to be the most brilliant and ridiculous financial news clip I've seen in recent memory, Bloomberg decided to bring in little-known gold expert Mr. T to talk about the precious metal's recent rally. As you can see by looking at his neck, he's been a fan of gold for a very long time. Somehow, Bloomberg almost takes him seriously. Here's Mr. T explaining why Gold is so special:

When I was little I use to adore gold. It was something special. Ya know. So like the Incas or the Mayans, they say gold was the sweat from the sun or tears, ya know. So gold always been special. Gold was back when Jesus and Moses days. Ya know the Ark of the Covenant it made of pure gold. Cherubim wings of the angels, ya know, the holier of holies. It's gold. Gold . Gold was special. Gold was one of the gifts that the three wise men brought to Jesus. Frankincense and myrrh and gold. So I saw there was something special about gold. And I knew it was a special. So I started planting things then. My mother always told me about planting your crops and eventually reaping your rewards.

Watch the full video at Bloomberg. It's Friday afternoon; you deserve it.
