Bernie Mac

Bernie Mac died yesterday at the age of 50. Of Pneumonia. At 50 years old. I don't get it. Life's screwy that way.
Here's a sort of funny clip from his cameo in House Party 3. In it, there's a nod to his predecessor Robin Harris in the franchise as the foul-mouthed father figure to "Kid". If you don't remember, Harris played Kid's father in the original House Party, and as "Sweet Dick Willy" in Do The Right Thing (1989). He died at the height of his fame in his late thirties in 1990. Harris and Mac were good friends so there's well, a tender connection there.
