“Hold Me Closer, Tony Danza,” now with Tony Danza

The long-running Internet comedy team of Barats and Bereta are back with a new short film called "Scott and Zander's Crazy Night Out." From their avatar, you'd presume that this short will be featured on an upcoming episode of Funny or Die Presents on HBO. We'll just have to wait and see.

In the meantime, enjoy this clip from it, in which the fellas encounter Tony Danza and ask him if Elton John's song lyrics really ask them to "Hold Me Closer, Tony Danza." Tiny Dancer. Tony Danza. So close. In related news, I heard Tony Danza had a TV series in which he pretended to be a public-school teacher, but for real? Sounds like somebody got knocked in the head too many times. But I'm not the boss. Oh, wait. I am the boss.

Roll it!


Full credits: Starring Tony Danza, Barats & Bereta, Matt Walsh, Cleo King, Adam Devine, Blake Anderson, Julianna Guill, Bret Ernst, Ahmed Ahmed, and Iliza Shlesinger
