Watch Mayor Bloomberg Pay to Humiliate Himself, Sing Horrendously Off-Key in a Hoodie


See how far you can make it in this year’s torturous seven-minute lowlight reel — created by the mayor’s office — of Michael Bloomberg’s annual, always embarrassing Inner Circle dinner performance without overdosing on discomfort. (Then fast-forward to the 5:50 mark for the leather jacket guitar solo.) While Bloomberg has spoofed Hair and Spider-Man in the past, the New York Times reports that he “paid out of pocket for his big-budget portion of the event” this time, his last ever, enlisting stars from all of the big Broadway musicals, none of whom were possibly paid enough.
