Default Heath Ledger's Joker is Tom Waits? eerie.

So has anyone seen this yet? it's kinda blowing up right now. It's an interview with singer Tom waits from 1979 that sounds eerily like heath ledgers joker.

Even his mannerisms are somewhat reminiscent of the jokers pretty cool.

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:

Big fan of Tom Waits, He's an acquired taste, but IMO, he's very talented, very much an original, and very funny to boot. I don't know if he wrote the line, but he was the first I ever heard say "I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy." Good actor too.
I hadn't thought about but Ledger's performance was somewhat reminiscent of Waits and his general demeanor. Coincidence? Or was Ledger a fan too?

The show apparently is from Australia as well. Sounds a lot like him. Wow!

I'd be surprised if it wasn't influential. Maybe not this particular interview, but Waits himself.
