The first thing that comes to mind when you hear the name Buzz Aldrin is probably “moon landing.” The second thing that comes to mind is “moon landing conspiracy,” because there are some people out there who are 100% convinced that the whole thing was orchestrated by Stanley Kubrick on some sound stage.
Some moon landing conspirators are much more vocal than others, as comedian Bill Burr points out when he hilariously commentates on the time Aldrin punched a guy in the face who tried to get him to swear on the Bible that he did, in fact, land on the moon.
You’d think a video of Buzz Aldrin socking some jerk with a right hook would be great enough, but throw in Burr’s Boston-accented breakdown of the whole thing, and you’ve got yourself a fantastic four minutes of quality entertainment.
