Victor Borge - 80th birthday, Michala Petri

My mother used to complain that VB never finished his music pieces. A fair complaint, he was very funny, but also a bril pianist. 
He was Danish, for those who don't know. There are subtitles on the video. If they don't show, try the CC button on lower right.

He addresses Michala by the formal form of "you" in Danish, something which is quite unusual in modern times. But he seems to like her. I don't blame him, what a luvverly woman.

His Danish is nigh perfect, even after having lived in the US for over fifty years.

When I was younger I confused him with Jorge Luis Borges. D'oh! ;-)
