Grungy Bruce

I contend this TV clip of a man performing on stage at the Apollo Theater earlier this year does not feature a homeless feel-good character, but instead Bruce Willis in disguise. No one in the mainstream media seems to have picked up on this. Most of my friends do not believe me.

Willis has convinced people that he is "real life homeless man, Brad Prowley, who makes a living singing classic R&B songs on the streets of major cities not just to get by, but out of a true, life-long passion for music."

I suspect this is some sort of gambit by Willis to demonstrate that he can "act," and that he is more than just an action star. I suppose it also gives him a chance to sing, like he used to, and to be appreciated (so to speak) on his vocal merits alone.
