We continue our tribute to David Letterman with another clip from his NBC days at Late Night With David Letterman. Back in the 80s, Letterman was quite fond of getting into suits with odd things adorned on them. His most famous stunt probably involves his suit of velcro, which was shown many times on all his highlight shows.
In the clip above, Dave get into a suit festooned with dozens of dry sponges. He is weighed on a scale before lowered into a huge tank of water. Once sufficiently dunked, he is weighed again to see how much water he has absorbed into the suit. The results may surprise you.
If you enjoyed this clip, just go to YouTube and search for “David Letterman suits” and you’ll find the other times he did this.
