GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. -- There he goes again.
You would think the higher-ups would know better then to ask KARE 11's Eric Perkins to host and emcee the 2010 Upper Midwest Emmys.
First off, he refused to wear a tie with his tuxedo, putting a 'casual formal' spin on a normally staid occasion. Then there was the spastic, disjointed patter he's become famous for.
But the most jarring move by Perk was his shameless videotaped beg-fest that he himself titled "Lemme win an Emmy." Part old-time hollywood softshoe, part scene-jumping Twin Cities shout out, it features a song that can only be described as 'original Perk.'
You'll have to judge for yourself by watching the video below.
