I’ve recently come to love watching Craig Ferguson, at least his opening monologues. But what’s with his walking up to the camera and whacking it every now and then? It almost seems like he’s pressing a button. (Er, where’s the cameraman?)
I’ve tried searching on this, and some people say it’s like he’s affectionately thumping the viewer on the shoulder, using the camera as proxy. Kind of weird.
Mind, I think Craig’s all that and a bag of chips, but this little quirk kind of takes me out of the moment every time he does it. Just wondering if anyone knows what’s up.
