Floyd at his most enthusiastic!
Thanks! Share it with your friends!
classic upload :)
You seem to be confusing a TV persona (assumed personality) with the man

Love it! Thank you so much for posting this!
Great thing about Floyd was he really did enjoy, appreciate and understand

He did seem to be a bit of an obnoxious, drunken pitbull, snarling at the
production staff and appeared aloof and unconcerned with people surrounding
him, however his TV show was reasonably revolutionary for the time, these

as discounted as they are now, his insight into these countries culture and
their eating habits are pretty invaluable.
