Good Morning, World

We just voted him the Hottest Director Alive and Taika Waititi's Nazi-satire Jojo Rabbit hits theaters today -- I won't be seeing it until this weekend sadly, so don't come around asking me for an opinion just yet -- and so what better time to skip merrily back in time to 2002 to the time he co-starred on a New Zealand television program called The Strip that was about, you guessed it... 

... male strippers. It's too early in the morning for me to google about and see what World Directing Superstar Taika Waititi has had to say about Lowly Regional Television Actor Taika Waititi's pseudo-stripper past, I'm sure it was amusing and he's not at all ashamed of it -- I mean it's a comedy, after all -- but just in general I don't know much about this show so if anybody's ever properly seen it or heard Taika talk about it feel free to share those insights.

That said the episode seen here was kindly uploaded in its entirety onto the YouTube, and I'll share that this morning in case anybody's got an empty morning staring at them in the face. Here's a proper way to waste it!

Dare I say... I prefer him with grey hair?
