How humiliating it must have been – he was the genius responsible for Citizen Kane, and les than fifty years later he was shilling for frozen peas. That’s quite the career drop off.

If you haven’t heard the outakes from the infamous Orson Welles frozen peas ad, you’re probably in the minority. This thing has been circulating since before the days of the internet. Still, I’m sure there are a lot of you haven’t heard of it, so I thought I’d share it by linking to an mp3 of the recording at 365 Days Project.

The audio can be found here.

It’s a funny clip, but not ha ha funny. More like “watching Welles grow angry with disgust at the people trying to tell the man who brought us The Magnificent Ambersons how to properly hit the word beef” funny.
