Ron Howard: hip-hip video star?

This morning I was just beginning to wake up, eating my cereal and casually scrolling through channels on TV when I saw something that made me question whether or not I was still dreaming. I actually stumbled across an actual music video on MTV, which is disorienting enough- but it got more bizarre... The video was Jamie Foxx and T-Pain's auto-tuned club favorite "Blame It (On the Alcohol)." It was a typical hip hop video- girls dancing, popping bottles, etc.- and then, out of nowhere, there is none other than Ron Howard. Yes, the one from Happy Days who is now an Academy Award-winning director. What is he doing there?! The weirdness doesn't stop there: other appearances include Jake Gyllenhaal of Brokeback Mountain fame, along with Forest Whitaker. (Samuel L. Jackson is in there too, which was the only cameo that made remote sense.) You have to love Jamie Foxx for making this happen...

Here's Ron Howard on the View trying to explain how this happened:
