Ok. Yeah, we all know now. It was an elaborate joke. Performance art. A long con. And Dave wasn’t in on it (wink, wink).

Joaquin Phoenix is back. The beard is gone. He still seems to be on something, if you ask me. It’s almost like he’s trying hard to be normal this time. But just barely makes it…

I hope it’s not untoward of me to point out the irony: Dave jokingly holds Joaquin up for a million dollars, or else he’ll sue. Um… didn’t something like that just happen to Dave? He knows extortion schemes don’t work out, right?

Also, please keep watching until the end, when Dave lands his best zinger of the night…

Oh, and remember, you can watch the year-ago appearance they’re referencing by clicking here.
