Saturday Night Funny Video: New Imaginary HBO Mini-Series from Tom Hanks

A departure tonight from my usual Saturday offerings of news media/politics-related humor clips. Instead, something a bit more light-hearted about an until now un-chronicled historic breakthrough.

Tom Hanks has produced a bunch of HBO mini-series, including Band of Brothers, The Pacific and John Adams, and Thursday night on CBS’s Late Show he made some fun of himself as he presented a promotional clip for a new “mini-series event” in which he will star. It will tell the story of “Bert Loomis,” inventor of a certain revolutionary breakfast food product.
