Nardwuar vs. James Brown.

Nardwuar the Human Serviette [wiki] is a Canadian celebrity interviewer and musician from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. He legally changed his name in 1986, and argues that "no one refers to Iggy Pop as 'James Osterberg'". When asked to explain his name, Nardwuar once quipped "Nardwuar equals dumb silly name, like Sting; Human means human, as in Human Fly; and Serviette is something you can't get in the U.S. because down there they're called napkins."

His interviewing style can be quite grating and confusing to those who have had no prior experience with him.

Nardwuar does extensive research on the interviewee to confuse/scare/impress them, often bringing up facts about band members' pasts that they have a hard time recalling, until he coaches them along.

The interview will always end with "Keep on rockin' in the free world", and the "doot doola doot doo..." of "Shave and a Haircut", to which the interviewee must respond with the final "doot doo!".
