Watch Neil Patrick Harris’ opening number from last night’s Tony Awards (with added Mike Tyson)

Vintage Tyson.

The 2013 Tony Awards took place last night, celebrating the best of live Broadway theatre. But Flickering Myth covers films, television and comic books?! True, but with Kinky Boots (the musical adaptation of the 2005 British comedy film) picking up six trophies, and actor Neil Patrick Harris hosting, these worlds often crossover. Perhaps not as dramatically as a Marvel Universe crossover, but fun nonetheless.

In fact, Marvel even gets here. At 7mins 43secs there’s a brief appearance by Spiderman from the musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. For the big celebrity crowd spots, there’s Tom Hanks (6mins) and Jessie Eisenberg (7mins 8secs).

But they all pale in comparison to Mike Tyson’s cameo at 3mins 18secs, doing, what seems to be, his best drunk dad-dancing.

Also, nice Les Miserables shout out at 5mins 50secs (“At the end of the day…”) and what a leap by Harris at 3mins in. He really put on a show…


Enjoy having that stuck in your head for the rest of the day.
