0416_smothers_videoHere's a cool video of a 75-year-old man doing some pretty bad ass yo-yo tricks in L.A. this weekend.

The 75-year-old man happens to be famous.

His name is Tom Smothers.

If you don't remember who Tom Smothers is, ask your grandpa. If your grandpa isn't around, watch the clip from his and his bro's famous variety show back in 1969.

The Smothers Brothers were awesome!! I was very very young when they were popular, but everybody should know who they are...if not, our parents aren't doing their jobs.

Maybe I am showing my age (in 30s, so not THAT old), but I have to google some of these other "new" celebrities. Tom Smothers needs no googling. Back when begin famous required a real talent (He is more than the Yo-Yo Man)

Tom and **** Smothers have more singing, songwriting, comedy and - yes - yoyo talent in their little fingers than any 10 of TMZ's favourite pop tarts and pretty boys. They are legends, as entertainers and as activists. May they live to 100.

What a stupid website that blocks the short form of Richard. How moronic and simple do they think people who read TMZ are that a word like 'd***' will offend them?

(see previous comment with ****)

The Smothers Brothers were the shiz in their day. I remember watching them too. At 36 years of age I knew exactly who it was before looking at the story. I second what Charma stated, "Back when begin famous required a real talent", so well said and true.

Just imagine how bad things at TMZ will be when Harvey leaves one day and no one at the company will have heard of any celebrities prior to the 1980s.

He still has it! Tom taught me how to yo-yo when I was child back in the mid 80's. Him and his brother **** were doing a grand opening for Home Depot?(might have been Builders Emporium back then) and taught all us kids some tricks. I'm sure he's still the nice man he was back then.
