VIDEO: Why In The World Was Joe Biden on Carmen Sandiego?

This 1993 video re-emerged to viral fame this week:

Biden’s obviously changed in the last 20 years. His hair is grayer—and, uh, his hairline somehow fuller—and it’s tough to believe that he’d ever pull off a guest shot so free of charisma and emoting ever again: Just watch this video from tomorrow night’s Parks and Recreation, where Biden doesn’t say a word, and try not to be dazzled by the smile he gives Amy Poehler in the brief scene. The man’s an incredible talent, but he needed time to develop it. Then again: We can see how Amy Poehler is more likely to elicit a dazzling smile than a guy in a pastel fedora. [Vulture]
