Free Beer & Hot Wings Flashback: Producer Joe’s Weirdo Inspirational Speech [Video]

In June on "The Free Beer & Hot Wings Morning Show," we watched an oddly inspirational video from a bearded, shirtless, only-underwear-wearing man in New York.

He was asked a number of questions by a tourist and his answers were both surprising and hilarious at the same time.
