Rock a Bye Belefonte, The 84 Year Old Falls Asleep live on Air [video]

We let you be the judge from the video below however Harry Belefonte’s camp says the singer was not snoozing.  The news cast proceeds to poke fun at the 84 year old, the newscaster even belting out “Day-O”.

I’m not sure if it’s funny or rude, but it also appears that Harry’s ear piece wasn’t working.  Also where are the people on Harry’s side?

Here is what is camp had to say about the incident,

After weeks of literally hundreds of interviews promoting his HBO documentary [Sing Your Song], memoir and CD, Mr. Belafonte had an early morning satellite TV tour this past Friday. His earpiece wasn’t working, so he decided to take the time to mediate before the rest of his Day-O.

Mr. Belafonte is 84 years young, but sharper and more awake than most who have been interviewing him. Maybe the world would be a better place if more people took a moment to meditate.”

Ok, whatever you say. Harry, meet the internet and viral video – viral video, meet sleeping Belefonte!
