"This watch is so hot it burned my fingers." So? Since when do pawn dealers care about crap like that?

“This watch is so hot it burned my fingers.” So? Since when do pawn dealers care about crap like that?

Bo Diddley, his hat,  his fingers, the way he says Philadelphia,  and his understated double take could have stolen this scene if it weren’t for Dan Akroyd putting on the comedy after-burners. Maybe it was that he had a psychic premonition that Eddie Murphy was going to get all the attention, or maybe he was just on it that day, but…seriously…you had me at Staad, Danny. You had me at Staad.
