In Ad for Monty Python, Mick Jagger Wonders Why ‘Wrinkly Old Men’ Are Reuniting

'The best one died years ago!'

Today in self-deprecating celebrity humor, Mick Jagger delivers a somewhat stilted but still very amusing rant about opportunistic elderly people in this ad for the current Monty Python reunion. It seems Mick, no stranger himself to silly walks, can't understand why anyone would pay to see "a bunch of wrinkly old men trying to relive their youth and make a load of money." He wouldn't know anything about that, of course. He adds, impishly, "I mean, the best one died years ago!"

The Monty Python Live (mostly) reunion launched Tuesday night with the first of 10 shows at London's O2 Arena through July 20. Read The Guardian's review of Tuesday's performance here.
