In the late 70’s and early 80’s, if you lived in the city, Prince embodied the gritty multi-culti reality that surrounded you.

You can see the video over here. Editor’s Note: I just cannot begin to comprehend how this is actually real. But it appears to be, in fact, real? Word is the car was going “just” 60mph (surely enough to slice his legs off if he was late, or decapitate him if he was early.) Also, this guy was also Daniel Craig’s stunt double in Skyfall.

THE MAN SPEAKS: George Clooney sat down with Esquire.
