Andre the Giant on Letterman


Here is a rare TV appearance of the late great Andre the Giant. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Andre, he was a professional wrestler in the 70s/80s who was known for being the largest athlete in the world. Wearing a size 20 boot, Andre was 7 feet 5 inches, and weighed over 500 pounds at his peak. He was undefeated as a pro wrestler for over 15 years and had an incredible appetite for food and booze. He is often referred to as the “world’s greatest drunk”, as he could pound back dozens of bottles of wine and hundred of beer in a single sitting. This interview with David Letterman is kind of funny, as Andre says he stopped drinking beer. I doubt that lasted long.

Just look at the size of Andre’s head and hands compared to Dave.
