So Letterman’s last show is on tonight so I am once again sharing a video of him playing “Stop Calling Me Chief” - one of my favorite ‘games’ Letterman ever played.
A camera would go out on the street and Dave would talk to someone, and while talking he would keep calling them chief. The person he talked to would win if they said, “stop calling me chief”. No one ever won, and they stopped playing the game. I think they did it 4 or 5 times tops. Each time they played they would get looser with the rules, at one point Dave was just hoping someone would acknowledge that he kept calling them chief.
I linked to a Stop Calling Me Chief game before (back in 2012) but that link seems to not work (so I am not re-linking to it here). If I remember I downloaded that previous video and still have a copy of it somewhere. I am relatively certain that this is a different episode then what I posted before.
This is dumb and I love it and it’s one of the reasons I love Letterman.
