Mark Lowry – Wal-Mart Commercial (Comedy/Live)


SO NICE TO BE UP HERE WITHOUT
BILL GAITHER UP HERE GETTING IN MY WAY. [laughter]
YOU KNOW, THIS IS EXCITING FOR US TO BE ON BROADWAY. I MEAN, I’VE BEEN TO BROADWAY,
BUT I’VE NEVER BEEN ON BROADWAY BEFORE. AND I’VE BEEN TO THE GRAND OLE
OPRY, AND THAT’S EXCITING TOO. IN FACT, TRAVELING WITH BILL
GAITHER, IT’S NICE TO NOT HAVE HIM UP HERE, BECAUSE I-I’VE
TRAVELED WITH HIM FOR 13 YEARS NOW, AND IT’S–
YOU KNOW, HE’S GOT A.D.D. WORSE THAN I DO. THAT’S THE ONE THING I’VE
LEARNED ABOUT HIM. HE’S GOT IT BAD. THAT’S WHY HIS HAIR IS SO FRIZZY
I THINK, THOUGH. BUT WHEN WE WERE AT THE GRAND
OLE OPRY THE VERY FIRST TIME, LIKE THIS IS OUR FIRST TIME TO
BROADWAY, THE VOCAL BAND WAS BACKSTAGE AT THE OPRY, AND WE
WERE ALL NERVOUS, EXCEPT FOR BILL, ‘CAUSE HE’S–YOU KNOW,
HE’S BEEN AROUND SINCE METHUSELAH. [laughter]
AND HE’S DONE ABOUT EVERYTHING. ALL DAY LONG, ALL BILL GAITHER
COULD TALK ABOUT WAS HOW HE WANTED TO SEE THIS WAL-MART
COMMERCIAL. THAT’S ALL HE COULD TALK ABOUT. AND SO THEY PUT A TV BACKSTAGE
IN THE DRESSING ROOM JUST FOR HIM SO HE COULD KEEP HIS EYE OUT
FOR THIS WAL-MART COMMERCIAL ALL DAY LONG. AND I SAID, “BILL, YOU’LL GET TO
SEE THE WAL-MART COMMERCIAL SOME OTHER TIME. WE’RE AT THE GRAND OLE OPRY.” THEY HAD THAT TV BACK THERE, AND
HE KEPT ONE GOOD EYE ON IT ALL DAY. AND WE WENT OUT AND SANG, AND HE
CAME BACK OUT AFTER WE SANG, AND WE WERE, YOU KNOW, CHANGING
CLOTHES, GETTING READY TO GO HOME. AND BILL SAID, “YOU KNOW WHAT WE
NEED TO DO? WE NEED TO PRAY,” ‘CAUSE WE JUST
GOT DAVID PHELPS, OUR NEW TENOR, AND WE WERE ALL EXCITED ABOUT
THAT. AND WE WERE BACKSTAGE, AND WE
PUT OUR ARMS AROUND EACH OTHER AND STARTED PRAYING, YOU KNOW? BILL STARTED LEADING THE PRAYER,
YOU KNOW, AND HE STARTED CRYING, ‘CAUSE HE CRIES AT EVERYTHING. [laughter]
I MEAN, HE’LL BE ON THE BUS WATCHING THOSE VIDEOS OF HIS,
AND HE’LL CRY AT THE SAME SPOT HE CRIED AT ON THE VIDEO. I ASKED HIM, LIKE, “HAVEN’T YOU
SEEN THIS?” BUT WE WERE IN A HOLY HUDDLE,
YOU KNOW, AND HE STARTED CRYING AND PRAYING. AND DON’T TELL ME GOD DOESN’T
HAVE A GOOD SENSE OF HUMOR, ‘CAUSE IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT
PRAYER THAT WAL-MART COMMERCIAL CAME ON TV. AND BILL’S SHOULDERS FROZE UP,
AND HE STARTED SHAKING. I HAD MY ARM AROUND HIM, AND HE
STARTS SHAKING. AND I REMEMBER THINKING,
“HEAVEN, WE GOT A PROBLEM.” HE STARTED STUTTERING, GOING
[stuttering] “GOD BLESS YOU, BYE-BYE.” BILL GAITHER TOLD GOD TO BLESS
HIMSELF. BILL GAITHER HUNG UP ON GOD FOR
A WAL-MART COMMERCIAL.
